Family, employer mourn man, 61, who died at Lucan workplace
May 6, 2022
The 61-year-old whose workplace death is being probed by Ontario’s Labour Ministry is being remembered by his boss as a kind person who went out of his way to help others.
The London Free Press has identified the deceased as Gary Longworth of St. Thomas. He died Monday morning at OJB Industries, a farm-equipment manufacturer in Lucan whose owner says he found his employee unconscious on the floor at the Breen Drive factory.
“He was a caring person and was really good at his job,” owner Otto Bloemen said in an interview Friday. “If you’d ask him to stay an extra hour, he’d always do it. He really loved being on the farm. He loved the animals, and the dogs always got treats from him.”
Longworth, a five-year employee, was working on his own before his death, Bloemen said. A fire alerted him to the area where he found Longworth, he said. “He shut the shot blaster off . . . but didn’t shut off the compressor. (It) ran for half an hour without pumping any air and overheated. That’s when the fire started but there was no smoke or anything.”
Emergency crews were called Monday at about 9:30 a.m. to the business, where police said one person was pronounced dead at the scene. Police ruled the workplace incident as “non-suspicious” and the Labour Ministry is conducting a mandatory investigation.
