Gerry Fraley Cause of Death

Fraley, who died early Saturday morning at 64 after a two-year bout with cancer, was a loyal friend, bitter enemy, loving father and a “ballwriter’s ballwriter,” according to the consensus of nearly two dozen national colleagues.

He also covered football, basketball, NASCAR and various assignments over a career spanning four decades. Fraley’s versatility said his Dallas Morning News boss, Garry Leavell, “is what separated him from his peers.”

Only a month before his death, he wrote the lead on a Stars-Predators NHL playoff game despite his weakened condition and a tight deadline. Hit the button with a minute to spare, as was his custom.
