A truly great idea! One of those ‘why didn’t I think of that’ ideas that you just smack yourself in the head for πŸ™‚

SALT LAKE CITY β€” Walter Fredrick Morrison, the man credited with inventing the Frisbee, has died. He was 90.

Utah House Rep. Kay McIff, an attorney who represented Morrison in a royalties case, says Morrison died at his home in Monroe, Utah, on Tuesday. McIff is from Richfield, Morrison’s original hometown.

“That simple little toy has permeated every continent in every country, as many homes have Frisbees as any other device ever invented,” McIff said. “How would you get through your youth without learning to throw a Frisbee?”

Morrison’s son, Walt, told The Associated Press Thursday that “old age caught up” with his father and that he also had cancer.
