Ed Headrick, father of the modern Frisbee and designer of Wham-O’s first “professional model” flying disc, has died. He was 78.
Headrick’s wish that his ashes be moulded into memorial flying discs to be given to a select few family and friends and others who make donations in his memory will be honoured by his family, his son, Ken said today.
Peter Sellers stipulated that at his funeral, as the coffin was being taken away the accompanying music should be “In The Mood”.
Lots of people come up with wacky ways to have the last laugh on death, but all too often the family refuses to follow the wishes of the deceased.
