Vincent Margera, American reality television personality, Died at 59


Vincent Roy Margera was born on July 3, 1956, and died on November 15, 2015 due to kidney and liver failure.

More commonly known as Don Vito, he was an American former reality television personality known for his appearances in Viva La Bam, Jackass, Haggard and the CKY videos alongside his nephew Bam.

His career was ended with his conviction for child sexual abuse.

Vincent was born in Concordville, Pennsylvania.

He appears on television with his family, which includes his younger brother Phil, sister-in-law April and nephews Jess and Bam. Unlike his brother Phil, who is depicted as kind, easy-going and quiet, Vito is considered to be loud and obnoxious.

Vincent is unmarried and lives in a home formerly owned by his brother in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

Starting in 2003 Vincent appeared in the television series Viva La Bam where he was commonly referred to as “Don Vito,” a nickname given to him by nephew Bam.

The nickname referred to his near unintelligible speech reminiscent of Don Vito Corleone, of The Godfather, as well as saluting the Margera family’s Italian heritage.

In addition, Vincent is obese, and is often difficult to understand while speaking (especially when frustrated or angry), forcing subtitles to be used for some of what he says in Viva La Bam.

Even then, much of his dialogue is either gibberish or unintelligible.

Vincent has partial sight in one eye. He later appeared in Haggard: The Movie, a spin-off movie, which included many Viva La Bam cast members and appears in its sequel, Minghags.

Vincent passed away at age 59 in November 2015.
