From the Very Revd Andy Bowerman, Dean of Bradford:

“It is with a sense of personal as well as communal sadness that we received the news of the death of the former Bishop of Bradford The Right Reverend David Smith.

“He was a popular and faithful leader during his time as the Diocesan Bishop and he is fondly remembered for the many services and occasions that he led here at Bradford Cathedral.

“As the current Dean I personally remember him as the Bishop who ordained me right here in this Cathedral and for his wise counsel during my year as a Deacon.”
