Robbie Knievel, daredevil and son of stuntman Evel Knievel, has died. A family member says that Robbie spent his last days in hospice care after he lost his battle with pancreatic cancer. His daughters were with him when he died early on Friday morning.
The stuntman Robert “Evel” Knievel and his first wife, Linda, had a son named Robbie Knievel. Knievel was the third child of four, with two boys and two girls. He was named after his father’s father. Knievel has two daughters, Krysten and Karmen.
Analise and Kane are his granddaughter and grandson. Robbie, also known as “Kaptain Robbie Knievel,” followed in his dad’s footsteps from a young age.

He jumped his bike when he was only 4 years old, and he first performed at his dad’s show at Madison Square Garden when he was 8. In the rest of his career, he did more than 350 jumps, and 20 of them were world records.
One of the most memorable things he did was jump over the fountains at Caesars Palace in 1989. His father had tried to do the same thing before but failed.

Robbie also did the 30 limousines jump, the Grand Canyon jump, and the U.S.S. Intrepid jump, just to name a few, which were all dangerous stunts.
In 2011, at the Spotlight 29 Casino in Coachella, CA, he did his last stunt. He jumped 150 feet above tractor-trailer trucks. Robbie also had a short-lived role in the 2005 show “Knievel’s Wild Ride,” which showed how he and his crew prepare for his crazy stunts.
