MTV’s Jackass favourite Vincent ‘Don Vito’ Margera passed away yesterday due to liver and kidney failure aged 59. 

The uncle of Bam Margera was known for making numerous appearances on the cult TV show, as well as Bam’s spin off projects including Viva La Bam. 

Reports suggest Don Vito was in a coma for the final month of his life.

And despite seeming to make progress and waking up from his coma, his liver and kidney failure were too far gone. 

Margera passed away on Sunday 15 November. 


Reports suggest the organ failure directly related to years of excessive alcohol abuse.

Fellow Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn passed away in 2011 from an alcohol-related car accident, killing himself and his passenger.
