Grave of Fredric J.Baur


"A Grave in Pringles Can!"

We all have eaten the stacks of potato chips from the tubular Pringles cans. But can you imagine being buried in it after you die? Fredric J. Baur, the man who invented the signature Pringles cans, is buried in it. Baur, who was a researcher in FMCG giant Proctor & Gamble's food storage department, considered his invention groundbreaking. The grave is burrowed in the pleasing gardens of Arlington Cemetery. A small granite gravestone with Baur's name alongside his wife's, rests in the extensive grasslands of the garden. According to his will, he wished that part of his ashes be buried in a can of Pringles. Upon his death in 2008, his sons fulfilled his wish. If you are around you can pay your respects to the man who took his invention to the grave!
