    Saw his obit at WBNS-TV website earlier, and wondered how old he was, or if he was even still alive.

    They said he was one of the most recognized figures in OH of the 20th Century. He will be missed, but what is nice is, he will always be remembered for his gentlemanly manner and of course, for his restaurants and products.

    So is Bob famous for anything other than the restaurants?

    I'm going to fry a few eggs and sausages, then dump them on the ground in his honor.
  7. He gives huge piles of cash to a college - Rio Grande I think.
    I'm sure they'll get a hefty windfall.

    He did unmentionable things to pigs.
  9. Is he bequeathing something to a cardiac unit?

    Yep, Rio Grande is correct. Infamous for once offering me a spot on their softball team.

    Bob Evans Farm used to be a really awesome place to go on field trips in elementary school. They always fed us.

    RIP Bob.

    "Most recognized" though? I was born and raised in North Central Ohio (Mansfield, to be exact), and I couldn't have picked the guy out of a lineup. Probably couldn't even now if he was up against the wall with four LIVING guys.
