Death Of Scufflin Hillbilly

One of the two Scufflin Hillbillies, Chuck Conley, passed away recently while in his 70s.

This pair of "rassling" hillbillies toured the USA in the 1960s and 1970s, with some stops in Arizona. They were the image of grappling mountain men in an era before the routine was widespread a la Hillbilly Jim and crew.

Their Arizona runs were never consistent, usually being stopoffs for extra cash when traveling between California and Texas.
