Dukes of Hazzard stars to gather for stuntman’s funeral

The celebrated stunt co-ordinator, who doubled for stars like Marlon Brando and James Dean, died earlier this month (Mar11).

He directed nine episodes of The Dukes of Hazzard and performed hundreds of stunts on the show, and now Dukes star John Schneider is calling on fans to join him and his castmates at Baxley’s funeral.

In an email to fans, he writes, “We have just received news of a ceremony to be held in his honour in April. It will be attended by many of the cast and crew of The Dukes of Hazzard and it will be completely open to family, friends and fans.”

The service will take place at Braemar Country Club at noon on 16 April (11).
