My Wonderful Life

Fredric J. Baur

Fredric J. Baur, designer of the Pringles potato chip can, died on May 4th, 2008.  In 1970, Baur received a patent for the Pringles packaging, and because he was so proud of his design, he asked his family to bury him in a Pringles can.  Fredric was cremated, and part of his remains were placed in a Pringles can, the rest in an urn.  The two containers were buried in his grave at Arlington Memorial Gardens.
