John Schneider, who plays Bo Duke, reveals in an e-mail that the Paul Baxley's funeral will be attended by many of the '80s TV series' cast and crew, and will be open to fans.
The cast of cult 1980s TV show "The Dukes of Hazzard" are set for a sad reunion on April 16 as they gather to mourn director/stuntman Paul Baxley. The celebrated stunt coordinator, who doubled for stars like Marlon Brando and James Dean, died earlier this month on March 11.
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 honor 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 April 16.
