Daredevil, Entertainer. Robert Knievel was born in Butte, Montana. He was a motorcycle daredevil whose daring and highly publicized motorcycle jumps, including attempting to jump over the Snake River canyon, made him a household name. Despite suffering a series of major injuries during stunts, he had a long career in stunt riding. He is immortalized in Washington's Smithsonian Institution as "America's Legendary Daredevil." His son, Robbie "Kaptain" Knievel, has carried on in his father's daredevil footsteps as a motorcycle stunt entertainer. (bio by: Fred Beisser)

In the last couple years of your life you came to Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. You never stopped speaking out for Him. Now you rest with Him. I rejoice for you my brother and look forward to the day I can meet you in person.
