Stephen spent his career working in the financial industry, notably with Deak-Perera, Bank of America and finally retired from CIBC in 2012. He spent his retirement traveling with Gina, volunteering and spending time with his grandchildren Zoë, Crawford, Jamieson and Simone. A devout Catholic, Stephen and Gina were parishioners of St. Francis Xavier Parish where he volunteered in many capacities including ushering, counting, and parish committees. Stephen was also a member of the Knights of Columbus, the Royal Canadian Legion and a past board member of Vita Centre.

Stephen and I worked together at Deaks in the mid 1970's. He was always a good person to spend time with and enjoyed our frequent travels together to Montreal, New York and Vancouver visiting branch offices. We lost touch as the decades passed by but I have many fond memories of Stephen.

Dear Harvey family:

I wanted to send you my deepest sympathies at this difficult time. Steve was a valued colleague of mine on the anti-money laundering file at CIBC, working with me at the Department of Finance on a number of initiatives. I remember fondly his love for his children, and his grandchildren. He spoke of you often with pride. I also remember his commitment to volunteering and the gift of giving. He was a great colleague.
