Dr. Fredric J. Baur, the inventor of the Pringles potato chip can has asked that his ashes be buried inside a Pringles can. His family honored that request after he died last month on May 4, 2008.

Interestingly enough, he was also the inventor of freeze-dried ice cream:
The ice cream was patented and marketed, but didn't catch on. "Basically, what you did, you added milk to it, put it in the freezer and you had ice cream," said his son Lawrence J. Baur of Stevensville, Mich. "That was another one he was proud of but just never went anywhere."
