Vincent "Don Vito" Margera — a frequent fixture on the popular MTV series "Jackass" and "Viva La Bam" — has died at the age of 59.

TMZ reported that Margera died on Sunday morning, after suffering from kidney and liver failure. Margera was the uncle of "Jackass" co-star Bam Margera.

Margera's entertainment career ended in 2006 after he was arrested and charged with two counts of sexual assault against minors, stemming from an incident at an autograph signing.
