1926 - 2015
Actor James Best known for his role as bumbling sheriff, Roscoe P. Coltrane on the the teevee series, The Dukes of Hazzard, died yesterday from complications of pneumonia. He was 88.
The Dukes ran from January 26, 1979 to February 8, 1985. When the show began I was 14 and loved it. When it ended I was 20 and loathed it. However let the record reflect that from 1979 to 1985 I loved Catherine Bach.
God speed, Roscoe.
