Evel Knievel Dies at 69

By Mitch Stacy, The Associated Press

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Evel Knievel, the red-white-and-blue-spangled motorcycle daredevil whose jumps over buses, live sharks and Idaho's Snake River Canyon made him an international icon in the 1970s, died Friday. He was 69.

Knievel's death was confirmed by his granddaughter, Krysten Knievel. He had been in failing health for years, suffering from diabetes and pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable condition that scarred his lungs.

RIP :,-(

Very sad. There's a good read on him in this month's Maxim too.

For his funeral, Knievel’s casket will be fitted with a rocket as he will attempt to jump Snake River Canyon in Idaho. His burial will take place wherever his casket may land.

Upon getting to the Pearly Gates Evil was told that the name had to go. So, on one condition, he agreed. He is now known as Good Knievel (a moral victory for God). Plus, his entrance into heaven was an actual motorcycle jump from Pergatory to Cloud #9. A very long jump indeed.

RIP Evil.
