Johnny Knoxville Writes Touching Tribute To Ryan Dunn

Johnny Knoxville wrote a beautiful piece on his website about his deceased friend, Ryan Dunn.

It's really quite touching and had us holding back tears.

Here's a snippet of what Johnny wrote:

At Ryan’s memorial Wednesday night in West Chester, people were invited up to the microphone to say a few words about his life, whatever they were feeling at that moment. I walked to the podium and tried to share memories of my dear friend, but the words were just spinning in my head. What came out were the mumblings of a man trying his best not to cry, and I wasn’t even successful at that. I didn’t break down, because I knew Angie or his family didn’t need to see that, but I also didn’t get to properly convey what Ryan meant to me. I won’t be able to do that here either, but I will try. Here is what I wished I could have told everyone then.

I felt 34-percent funnier when I was with Ryan, but I guess everyone did. He had such a hair trigger laugh reflex. He lived his life wanting to laugh and wanting you to laugh with him. He would cackle really f—ing loud, too, and it wasn’t uncommon that he would fall over from it. Sometimes I would fall with him because his spirit was very contagious….

We all are [hurting] because we loved you so much and now you’re gone. I know your spirit lives on in me, [your wife] Angie, Bam and everyone you touched, but that’s pretty tough to see right now through the tears. I’m starting to ramble now, just like I did at the memorial, so I’ll stop. You’ll have to excuse me, I’m just very sad because I lost my brother and my world got about 134-percent less funny. I don’t know what else to say right now, so I will close with I love you, Ryan. I have a lot of emotions swirling, but I want you to know I love you so very much.

Wow. He's obviously hurting and misses his friend so much. What a wonderful tribute to his good friend.

    I was at an Irish bar once and Bob Deniro had sent a phat whore to jerk me off. I said "let's go back to your place" because this is embarrassing. She said, I'll fuck you, but you'll have to wait until tomorrow, 12 o'clock. Call me at 12 o'clock. "OK", I said, and she gave me her number. On the way out she said, "oh, and I don't like anal, and I like to be eaten out first". Never happened.

    Anyone who tributes this loser, IS a loser too.

    Why is everyone sucking this dead guys dick? He obiously didn't care enough about his life to not drive drunk, so why should we?

    When someone dies from drinking and driving, I don't exactly take him or her into pity for quite obvious reasons. Yet, it's still unfortunate when someone dies so unexpectedly. I must say that Knoxville's tribute is very good.

    That wasn't all of it…He goes on to talk about how terrible it was that he had to tell his daughter that Ryan was gone. And how upset he is that his other children aren't gonna get a chance to know him. Everyone who knew Ryan is pretty tore up about the whole thing. I think they're all a lil' angry that it ended the way it did. But that doesn't change the love that they have for him.

    So sick of all this crying and mourning for a drunk driver who killed someone! How about some compassion for the victim's family? You know, that guy he KILLED.



  7. 7

    Yet someone else who won't admit to or take into account the complete shittiness of drunk driving and speeding like you're invincible. So, is Johnny going to tell his kids exactly HOW this great friend of his died?



  8. 8

    I am with everyone on here that is against drunk driving and that it could have been avoided.. Dunn was an idiot. He shouldn't of done it. But the fact of the matter is that Dunn had family and friends that obviously cared about it tremendously. He died tragically (yes his fault) but it doesn't change the fact that they will never see their loved one again… they are allowed to grieve and feel some pain.

    I think he was a great person the didn't deserve to die such a tragic way. But things happen for a reason. God decides when he wants us. People need to stop being so judgmental and hypocritical as of the few that commented here most likely drink or do narcotics and get behind the wheel of a vehicle. So what God forbid that something happens to you should we not give remorse for ur family and just call u a dumbass as well. Keep an open mind that it doesn't matter how u die its how u touch others and he obviously touched a lot of peoples hearts.

    Most of you are insensitive a.holes, yes he drove drunk but everyone makes mistakes. Imagine how both of theyre families and friends feel like? his friend in the car wasent smart either for getting in the car with him! so dont come on here and bash him and only feel sorry for his friend…….



  11. 11

    I'm pretty sure Ryan and Angie weren't married.

    I'm getting really sick of almost all of the comments here. Yes, he drove drunk and made hell of a really stupid mistake that no one should ever do, but still, who the hell are you to write that people should not mourn him? If it were your best friend who drove drunk and died, wouldn't you miss him/her? Would you just say "hey, he has himself to blame, I don't care about him anymore?" NO, of course you would cry yourself to sleep because your friend is Dead, and no matter what killed him, of course you would miss him. Stop being so fucking insensitive!
