You have to wonder how many black-eyes, broken bones, scrapes and bruises did the infamous Ryan Dunn endure over the years chasing that elusive rush of edrinaline all in an effort to shock us and make us laugh.

 Dunn was born in Medina, Ohio, and grew up in Williamsville, New York, before moving to West Chester, Pennsylvania, with his parents in his early teens. He first came into public attention while appearing in four videos alongside his friends in the CKY Crew, which stood for "Camp Kill Yourself" and of course he was most popularly known for his part in the JackAss crew and franchise.

Dunn took part in the characteristic stunts that made Jackass famous. While taping a skit for Jackass: The Movie, Dunn was driving a golf cart with Johnny Knoxville as his passenger. The idea was that he would launch the golf cart over a sandtrap and into a plastic statue of a giant pig, and the statue would be crushed. However, the statue did not crush, but instead forced the golf cart into the air and it landed upside down. Dunn was thrown from the cart, and Knoxville landed on his neck with the cart on top of him. In the commentary for the movie, Bam Margera noted Dunn's bad driving.

On June 20, 2011, at around 3:30 a.m. EDT, Dunn and Zachary Hartwell, a production assistant on Jackass Number Two, died when Dunn's Porsche 911 GT3 came off the road and hit a tree in West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania. Police said speed might have been a factor in the accident and prelimimary investigations suggested that the car had been travelling at over 100 miles per hour (160 km/h). Dunn had posted a photo on Twitter of himself at a bar drinking with friends a few hours before but the bar manager said Dunn did not appear drunk.

Let's take a look back at a life and career spent in the service to a generation of miscrients and misfits.

Rest In Peace Brother Ryan...-B
