    Sheriff Roscoe P Coltrane is no longer with us. Hope he and Boss are scheming again.

    Great actor.

    Though hopefully he won't mirror his character Jeff Myrtlebank from "The Twilight Zone."...

    R.I.P. Mr. Best. I guess now Boss Hogg and Roscoe teamed up once again. :*(

    Hopefully Uncle Jesse met him with a glass of moonshine when he got there.

    R.I.P. Rosco. He can finally reunite with his beloved hound dog Velvet ears aka Flash.

    Sad to see him go. He really helped make the Dukes of Hazzard what it was.

    To this day I still use Roscoe's mannerisms for so many things.
    - That famous "gyu-gyu-jst" for being excited.
    -I call my dog "velvet ears" all the time and when we go for a ride I always say "buckle up for safety, Flash" Even though her name is not Flash.
    -I also had another dog I always called "my lil' fat buddy"
    -"it's hot pursuit time" for driving fast.

    Just so many others. They are like second instinct for me. Great actor. I loved that he always said he got his Roscoe voice from the way he talked to his grand daughters. I use that voice all the time.

    Wow, was just reading around and found out he was a WWII veteran who joined the US Army Air Corps as a B-17 bomber gunner in 1944 and later became an MP while stationed in Germany.

    He was once considered a "Leading man"

    Check out his episode in "The Twilight Zone"

    So glad he did'nt go down that path
