Frisbee Inventor Dies

Wed Aug 14, 2002 10:07 pm

Is there anyone who has never thrown a Frisbee? One of the most popular of all toys ever, it wasn't even named after the man.

It is often the case that the most simple things give the most fun. I wonder if the halos will be safe in heaven?

"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. His family said his ashes will be made into Frisbees."

He has given alot of dogs and dog owners hours of fun...R.I.P.
