Feeling a slew of emotions, Johnny Knoxville deucided to blog on his website about losing his good friend Ryan Dunn.
In his post, he says that during Dunn's service, friends and family were asked to share memories at the podium.
What came out were the mumblings of a man trying his best not to cry, and I wasn't even successful at that, Knoxville wrote on his website. 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 wish I could have told everyone then.
Knoxville continues in his post writing about Dunn's loving personality, and shares memories from their Jackass days.
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 ... Ryan was a great listener. If you were having troubles, he was always someone you could go sit down and talk to. Granted, most of our sitting down was actually standing up playing pool together, but he was always there if you were sad about something. That's why all this is even harder because right now I really need to talk to him but I can't.
Knoxville also commented on how despite all the pranks and jokes, deep down Dunn was a loving man.
Ryan also had an enormous capacity to love. His friends and family got a lot, but a lion's share of that went to his sweet and beautiful Angie. If he wasn't with her he would be talking about her. More times than not he would smile wide through that filthy beard of his and say something along the lines of, How did I ever luck up and land her?
