‘Jackass’ Star Vincent ‘Don Vito’ Margera Dead At 59
TMZ is reporting that Vincent “Don Vito” Margera has passed away at the age of 59. Vincent was everybody’s favorite creepy and inappropriate uncle on the Jackass TV show, Viva La Bam and the Jackass movies. The outspoken personality was the uncle of Bam Margera.
Vincent had been struggling with kidney and liver failure for several years, and fell into a coma last month in Philadelphia where his condition only worsened. Bam’s mother said that Vincent passed away on Sunday at 6:45 a.m. from liver and kidney failure.
He was given the nickname of “Don Vito” because his speech was often unintelligible, much like Don Vito Corleone from The Godfather movie.
R.I.P. Don Vito.
