I didn’t know about it until this month, but Dukes of Hazzard star Christopher Mayer who played Vance Duke passed away in July at the age of 57 due to natural causes. He was engaged to be married for the third time. Mayer and co-star Byron Cherry played the replacement Dukes of Coy and Vance when John Schneider and Tom Wopat, who played Bo and Luke, walked out on the show in a dispute. They appeared in the 5th season for 18 episodes until Schneider and Wopat’s return in an episode that featured all four Duke boys. It was the only time they were all together. After Dukes of Hazzard, Mayer appeared in several TV shows and appeared in Jim Carrey’s Liar, Liar. He was also a born-again Christian devoted to the bible. Mayer has three children from his first two marriages. He will be missed by his family, friends, and the show-biz community, especially the Dukes of Hazzard fans worldwide.
