Frank Davis passes at the age of 71.

Frank Davis, the iconic New Orleans broadcaster and writer whose cooking, fishing and “Naturally N’Awlins” feature reports for Channel 4 made him a local favorite for more than three decades, died Monday night. He was 71.
In May 2013, Frank and his wife Mary Clare revealed to Channel 4 viewers that he was battling a rare autoimmune disease that robbed him of the use of his arms and legs. The disease, CIDP, or Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy, caused his own immune system to see his nerves and the insulation around them as foreign invaders, attacking and destroying them.

Re: Frank Davis passes at the age of 71.

Yes I heard this yesterday. Very sad.
Frank is now fishing in that BIG BOAT IN THE SKY, in waters so full of speckled trout that they're jumping out the water.

Frank, now you can fry your fish without worrying about cholesterol or salt!!! FRY 'EM UP FRANK!!

Rest in (fishing) peace Frank. I will miss your fish & game reports!
Caught many-a speckled trout with his advice.

WHO DAT!!
