PLP offers condolences to family of the late Sean Pitcher

Further condolences have been expressed to the family of One Bermuda Alliance treasurer and founding member Sean Pitcher, who died suddenly on Tuesday, aged 49.

Progressive Labour Party spokesman Curtis Williams last night, on behalf of the PLP, said: “We wish his family and colleagues peace and strength during this difficult time.”

A founding member of the OBA and Bermuda Democratic Alliance, Mr Pitcher was also chairman of the United Bermuda Party for a year in 2008/09. He also stood as a candidate for the UBP in Pembroke East at the 2007 general election.

News of his sudden death left OBA colleagues and members in shock. Mr Pitcher was well known in the community and was actively involved in a number of community groups across the Island.

OBA Leader Craig Cannonier described Mr Pitcher, on hearing the news as “a proud mohawk and fellow St David’s Islander, who was the man who convinced him to get into politics to help form the BDA.”

Funeral arrangements are pending.
