The inventor of the Pringles can is now buried in one.
Upon his death in 2008, just 20 days
shy of his 90th birthday, the inventor of the Pringles can, Fredric J. Baur, was cremated. In keeping with his wishes, his family placed some of his ashes in a Pringles can (not all of the ashes fit). This can was then buried with most of the rest of
his remains placed in a traditional urn. A second urn also contained a small portion of his remains which were given to one of Baur’s grandchildren, rather than buried.
