It is with great sadness that we have learned of the unexpected death of Christopher Mayer, who played cousin Vance Duke during the 1982-83 season of “The Dukes”. “Chip” Mayer was a real good guy, an athlete, a scholar, and a gifted actor.
When Alma and I started the original “Cooter’s Place” in Sperryville, Virginia back in 1999, Chris was the first guest from the show to drop by for a personal appearance. He was always charming and gracious to the fans.
He will be missed by all, but he will always be a part of the “Hazzard” family.
Rest in Peace, “Chip”.
