Von, whose real name is Joe Muchlinski, died Monday after “losing his long battle to mental illness” … according to his sister, Martha.
In his final video, posted Sunday, Joe talks about the type of guy he wants to be remembered as, citing his music and comedy as a couple of strong points in his life.
