In the (Pringles) can

The man who designed the Pringles potato crisp tube was so proud of his accomplishment that some of his ashes have been buried in one of the iconic tall, circular cans.

Fredric J. Baur died in Cincinnati on May 4, 2008. He was 89. Baur was an organic chemist and food storage technician who specialized for Procter & Gamble.

A portion of his ashes was also placed in an urn and buried in his grave alongside the can. The rest of the ashes were given to his grandson.
