Vincent Margera, the uncle of Jackass star Bam Margera, died on Sunday morning at 59.
Margera often appeared as a side character on both Jackass and on his nephew’s show Viva La Bam. He was known for his incoherent, rambling speech, which earned him his nickname, after Vito Corleone in “The Godfather.”
More recently, Margera had run into problems with the law, earning a ten-year probation sentence after he was ound guilty of two counts of sexual assault on a child in 2007. He also was ordered not to appear as his “Don Vito” character from the shows, and had to renounce his public persona over the course of his probation.
