At the age of 69, stuntman extraordinaire Robert Craig Knievel Jr., better known as "Evel Knievel" has passed away. Renowned for his wild stunts that involved his two-wheeler jumping over impossible obstacles, in the last few years, he became quite frail.

 

Evel leaves behind sons Kelly and Robbie Knievel, himself a pro daredevil, daughters Alicia and Tracey. He also had 11 grandchildren with ex-wives Linda Knievel and Krystal Kennedy.

 

Also mourning the loss of his employer is Darren Prince, Knievel’s marketing agent. The CEO of Prince Marketing Group says, "“He was a great man and there will never be another like him again. I feel honored to have worked with him and hope that America remembers him as not just a stuntman but as an American icon who put his heart and soul into entertaining us.”
