From the Cincinnati Enquirer:

Dr. Fredric J. Baur was so proud of having designed the container for
Pringles potato crisps that he asked his family to bury him in one.

His children honored his request. Part of his remains was buried in a
Pringles can - along with a regular urn containing the rest - in his grave at
Arlington Memorial Gardens in Springfield Township.

Dr. Baur, a retired organic chemist and food storage technician who
specialized in research and development and quality control for Procter &
Gamble, died May 4 at Vitas Hospice. The College Hill resident was 89.
