I first met Frank Davis when he was reporting sports for the Slidell Times newspaper in 1972, the same year I was editor of the Slidell Sentry. Later that year he started his own television outdoors program, and over the years he enjoyed a long and successful career with WWL-TV, first as an outdoor fishing reporter, and then as an expert chef in preparing Louisiana foods.
A good friend of St. Tammany Parish and especially the Youth Service Bureau's Chef Soiree fund raising event for many years, he died in 2013. CLICK HERE to read a NOLA.com article about him and his many community interests.
