Brain Haney memorial
A new memorial was recently dedicated to fallen officer Brian Haney.

In February, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department lost a member of its force when six-year veteran Deputy Brian Haney was killed in a traffic collision. In remembrance of him and his service to the city of San Juan Capistrano, a memorial was constructed with BrightView’s help.

Since BrightView already services San Juan Capistrano, Heidi Ivanoff, the city’s Community Services Manager, approached the team about partnering together for the project, which they quickly agreed to.

“Fernando Lopez, our Account Manager for the city, did the landscape rendering for the project,” said Leon Vitort, BrightView’s Greater OC Branch Manager. “We presented the plans and Heidi and the staff loved and approved them for us to move forward with.”

As part of the donation to the project, BrightView did the demolition to the existing space. They then installed an upgrade to the irrigation system and the plant materials.

The project was completed in August and a memorial dedication was held in late September.

“Heidi and the city were very pleased with the outcome of the project,” Vitort said. “We are so honored and proud to have been a part of it and the team feels great to have been able to honor a fallen office in this way.”
