AceShowbiz - John Schneider is mourning the death of his wife. "The Duke of Hazzard" actor announced Alicia Allain's death by sharing a heartbreaking tribute on his social media accounts.
Taking to Instagram, the 62-year-old shared a photo of Alicia and a picture of his hand holding his wife's in bed. "My beautiful Smile is pain free, living in her new body alongside Jesus," he began his caption.
"Please respect our privacy during this time of grief. Please do not ask any questions. If you have any pictures of us and our obvious love and adoration for each other, please post them below," he added. "Lastly… hug those you love tight and let them know how you feel. We always did."
John's celebrity friends have since offered their condolences. One in particular was Tom Welling, who commented, "So very sorry - such a light! Best wishes." Erica Durance replied, "I am so sorry for your loss. Praying for you."
While John has yet to reveal the cause of Alicia's death, she previously got candid about her struggles with breast cancer. When appearing on "Fox & Friends", she said she was "diagnosed with stage 4 HER2 negative cancer." The actor chimed in, "She was three years into a five-year shelf life."
Allain went on to note, "I went into like a speed course of reading what path I was going to take. I decided to do keto for cancer, CBD oil and then ground myself in minerals." She continued, "I really got into a really rigid regime."
John and Alicia tied the knot in July 2019 in an intimate ceremony in the barn at John Schneider Studios in Holden, Louisiana. However, the marriage was only symbolic as he was still legally married to his ex Elvira Castle, with whom he shares three children.
