Evel Knievel has jumped his last, leaped the void, rocketed off this mortal coil!
His death at the age of just 69 was announced today by his grand-daughter.
He had been ill for some time.
I remember growing up with Evel. I watched his stunts on TV and was even the proud owner of the Evel Knievel stunt bike toy!
I'm surprised how sad I am at his passing.
