Stuntman Robbie Knievel, 60

Second-generation stuntman Robbie Knievel died Friday morning after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Known to many as Kaptain Robbie Knievel, he was the son of legendary stuntman and thrill show master Evel Knievel. Following in his father’s footsteps he made his first bike jumps when he was 4 years old and went on to perform more than 350 jumps during his career. He set numerous records, including jumping the fountains at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas in 1989. Knievel, who performed his final stunt in 2011, is survived by his daughters, Krysten and Karmen and two grandchildren.
