Yesterday we were hit with some sad news again this weekend as it was announced that Jackass and Viva La Bam Star Don Vito – real name Vincent Margera – had died of liver and kidney failure at the age of 59. Don Vito was of course the uncle of Bam Margera who Bam never tired of pissing off in that stupid series that all of us probably watched ten years ago.
April Margera – who Bam also famously pissed off in the show – informed everyone that he passed away at around 6:45 a.m. EST yesterday morning. He had recently awoken from a coma caused by his liver and kidney problems, but wasn’t able to beat them.
Here’s a video of some of his best bits as a tribute. RIP.
If you need cheering up after this news, then check out Steve-O’s biggest ever flip jump off a bridge, which he only actually managed to complete recently.
UPDATE: I only just found out that Vito was convicted for groping two 12 year old girls at an autograph signing when he was pissed out of his brain. I was referring to his time on TV and not his personal life in this article.
