Dunn, who celebrated his 34th birthday on June 11, will be buried in Ohio. A public memorial will be announced at a later date, the website reported. Dunn’s best friend Bam's mother said she considered Dunn her son. He's gonna be really missed by everybody, April Margera told NBC News on Tuesday.
The Today show reported that Dunn's family members flew to West Chester from Ohio and Florida to plan his funeral, telling NBC News, We are devastated by the loss. Ryan will be greatly missed, but he will forever be in our hearts.
According to a preliminary toxicology report by the Chester County coroner's office, Dunn's blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit. The report also said that there were no drugs of abuse detected in Dunn's system.
Dunn was born in Ohio and grew up in New York before moving to West Chester. He then hooked up with Bam's CKY crew. He started off his career by doing stunts and skateboard tricks in a series of online videos, which later led to his part in MTV's Jackass in 2000. He was the star of his own short-lived MTV show, Homewrecker, and co-hosted G4's Proving Ground, which premiered last week but has since been pulled off the network's schedule, MTV reported.
