A veteran construction supervisor who oversaw major projects at Bear Mountain Resort, Oak Bay High and several Victoria highrises has died following a workplace accident.
John Scheeren, a superintendent for Campbell Construction, was struck on Nov. 30 by debris that fell several storeys from a 20-storey condominium under construction, the Yates on Yates. The unsecured material was blown from the building at 848 Yates St. during a major windstorm, said Scheeren’s youngest son, Robbie Scheeren.
The 64-year-old was airlifted to Vancouver General Hospital with traumatic injuries and died on Dec. 21.
