The guy used to get most of his clothes from a thrift store, and was once 'escourted' out of an AGM after he turned up on public transport looking like a bum.

Interesting company he founded, but he was never going to be too interesting himself. 91 is a good age. Rest in Pieces. grin

My daughters love IKEA, thinking that it is a restaurant that also sell furniture.

RIP, he is an inspiration on how many of us should live (simple and frugal), and focus our resources elsewhere more meaningful.
