Inventor of “The Party Cup” Dies at 84 Years Old

You probably didn’t realize it, but Robert Leo Hulseman has been partying with you for years…

The Red Solo Cup has been a staple at every kegger, Frat party and tailgate since the 1970’s, when Hulseman crafted the 16oz plastic cup that changed college parties forever.

People reports:

“Hulseman, 84, died December 21. A devoted Christian and family man who was married to his late wife Sheila for nearly 60 years, Hulseman is owed a debt of thanks by virtually every American (and quite a few imbibers overseas) for his now-ubiquitous invention, the red Solo cup.”

Pour one out for Robert Leo Hulseman… Rest in Peace
