Advice stalwart farewelled

The adviser community is mourning Peter Scully, who had been in the industry more than 40 years.

Scully died on February 11, aged 68.

He had worked for the Lifetime group for the past seven years but had been in the industry for many decades.

Ken Swain, chairman of the Lifetime board, had worked with Scully since the early 1980s.

Scully had always been one of the top producers, he said, and was an MDRT member for a number of years.

Swain said Scully was a firm believer in the value of insurance because he had seen first-hand what it did for his own family.

He was the eldest of nine children and had lost both his parents by the time he was 17.

While the community rallied around the family, Swain said it was insurance policies that stopped his siblings being separated, and gave Scully the resources to house and educate his family. “It gave him an unbreakable belief in the product,” Swain said.

“The thing that always amazed me about Peter was the loyalty clients had towards him. He got a lot of business from referrals.”

Many would remember him as a great storyteller, he said, who had a wide range of friends and loved rugby, racing beer and the church.  He was also a very good golfer, Swain said, and had more recently taken up fly fishing.

Lifetime chief executive Mike Jones agreed Scully was known for his “larger than life” character.

He was married to Brenda and was the father of six children and had 11 grandchildren.

His funeral was held on February 16.
