Born on 31 January 1937, son of Graham Scrivener and Eleanor Harvey, he worked for 48 years with RBC Dominion Securities. He was involved in the Winnipeg community through his business and volunteer associations with St. George’s Anglican Church (Crescentwood), Diocese of Rupertsland, United Way, Winnipeg Stock Exchange, Winnipeg Commodity Exchange, Investment Dealers Association, Canada Saving Bonds, Manitoba Liquor Control Commission, and Manitoba Club. He was especially active with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, serving more than three decades in a number of capacities including the club’s executive committee.
