For instance, just look at Fred Baur, the inventor of the Pringles can. When he died, he asked his children to bury his ashes in one of the iconic tubes. They obliged, settling on the “original” flavor to hold his remains. And then there’s Mark Gruenwald, a comic book artist whose ashes were mixed into the ink of “Squadron Supreme,” a 12-part series released in 1997.

However, in the case of the man who wanted to be buried with his fortune, it was quite a different story. In fact, his dying wish was apparently fueled by greed, rather than anything else. The story goes that the husband and wife had very different outlooks on life. He reportedly worked hard for his money and scrimped and saved over every penny, while his wife was kind-hearted and giving.

Before his death, the man had apparently made a rather strange request of his wife. And it seemingly wasn’t one that would gel naturally with her view of the world. The man reportedly asked to be buried with all his savings.
