SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - "Steady" Ed Headrick, the California inventor who figured out a way to make the Frisbee fly fast and straight, has died at the age of 78.
While no services are now planned, Headrick's ashes will be molded into a limited number of "memorial flying discs" which will be distributed to family and friends, and sold to help fund a future Frisbee/disc golf history and memorabilia museum, his son, Ken Headrick, said.
[...] "We used to say that Frisbee is really a religion -- 'Frisbyterians,' we'd call ourselves," Headrick said. "When we die, we don't go to purgatory. We just land up on the roof and lay there."
