BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, May 11 2016 – Renowned Barbadian cricket journalist, Tony Cozier, has died.
The 75-year-old, who has been the voice of West Indies cricket for nearly five decades, passed away Wednesday morning at the Bayview Hospital where he had been hospitalised for the last few days.
He leaves to mourn wife Jillian and children, Natalie and Craig.
Cozier’s outstanding career coincided with the halcyon days of West Indies cricket during the 1970s and 1980s, and he continued to chronicle the regional team’s fortunes over the last few decades of their decline.
Cozier was the editor of the West Indies Cricket Annual and was also a senior editor of leading local newspaper, the Nation.
