Melbourne, June 3 : The designer of the Pringles potato crisp packaging system was so proud of his creation that a part his ashes have been buried in one of his iconic cans.
Dr. Fredric J. Baur, who died at the age of 89 on May 4th, requested his family ensure his final resting place was inside his most famous creation.
Baur's kids said that they honoured his request to bury him in one of the cans by placing part of his cremated remains in a Pringles container in his grave in suburban Springfield Township, reports The Daily Telegraph.
The rest of his remains were placed in an urn buried along with the can, with some placed in another urn and given to a grandson, said Baur's daughter, Linda Baur of Mississippi.
Baur requested the burial arrangement because he was proud of his design of the Pringles container, a son, Lawrence Baur, of Michigan, said on June 2.
