Father of Frisbee dies at 78 - Mercury News
"Ed Headrick may be in heaven right now, or reclining on a rooftop. It's unclear where Frisbyterians go when they die." He didn't exactly invent the plastic flying disk, but he did improve it by adding those little grooves that make it more aerodynamic.
The most amazing part of this story, however, is what they plan to do with his ashes. By Ed's request, they'll be molded into a limited number of Frisbees that will be distributed to family and friends. It didn't say if they will keep the Frisbees, or fly them out over the ocean (or onto the rooftop?).
Read the whole story - Ed was a wild and crazy kind of a guy all the way till the end.
