‘A fine journalist with an eye for a story, never happier than when offering help to teammates: generously sharing his time, vast knowledge and ideas. 

‘Fraz loved sport & TV, working in both gave him structure in life, especially after his comeback from major illness. We’ve lost a lovely man. I can’t believe he’s gone and I’m so terribly sad for his family.’

Current Sky Sports Prmier League presenter David Jones said: ‘Desperately sad, and he was a bloody good journalist David.’

Jones’ colleague, Kelly Cates, who is also a Premier League presenter said: ‘I’m so sorry to hear this David. He was a lovely man and a big part of those early Sky Sports News days. Thinking of you.’
