Vincent Margera, a "Jackass" franchise regular known for his antics as crazy uncle "Don Vito" on MTV's "Viva La Bam," died Nov. 15, 2015, at age 59. His sister-in-law April Margera told CNN that he had struggled with kidney and liver issues for a while before his death. He's seen here (at left) with fellow "Jackass" and "Viva La Bam" stars, his nephew Bam Margera (center) and Ryan Dunn, in 2006.
