Sean Pryce has been working with Campbell’s Orchards for the past 6 years as an offshore worker from Jamaica. If you have ever enjoyed freshly picked fruits and vegetables from our farm, there is a good chance Sean was the one who hand-picked and carefully delivered the produce from our fields. Sean chooses to leave his family and friends in Jamaica every year to take the opportunity to work in Canada, sending 90% of his wages back home to support his family.
It is with heavy hearts that we share this sad story about Sean’s mother, Oakley “Miss Mama'' Anderson-Pryce, who was brutally murdered in her home in Jamaica. Oakley Anderson was a 55 year old mother of four and was found dead on Friday, September 3rd. Oakley lived in the secluded hills of Jamaica, where Sean also lived during our off-season. She was an upstanding Christian member of the rural community.
Upon hearing the news Sean immediately returned home. This tragedy will not only leave Sean and his family devastated and heart-broken, but also financially impacted due to the funeral costs and lost wages. We ask you to please consider donating to help Sean and his family recover from their horrible loss. All donations will go directly to Sean.
Sean is a big part of our Orchard Family. After six years he has become an integral member of our team and a leader for new workers. Sean has a solid work ethic with a friendly and kind demeanour, allowing him to take on larger responsibilities year after year. Sean has become very close with us, taking on not only orchard activities but also extra-curricular social events, such as beach volleyball. We will miss Sean and his expertise during our upcoming fall harvest.
Sean describes his mom as the only one in the world who can calm him. She will be very missed and has left our big softy Sean heartbroken.
