Funeral For Restaurant Owner and Sausage Man

RIO GRANDE, Ohio (AP) - Restaurant and sausage king Bob Evans will be buried today following a funeral service in southern Ohio.

The company Evans founded warns that seating will be limited for the service at the University of Rio Grande in the town of Rio Grande, about 92 miles south of Columbus.

Evans died Thursday at the Cleveland Clinic, where he was being
treated for pneumonia. He was 89.

Fans of the folksy Evans will have another chance to celebrate his life next month. A memorial service will be held Saturday July Seventh on the Ohio State University campus in Columbus.
