Bob Farrell
 


 

Age: 87



Summary: founder of Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour in Portland, Oregon in 1963, which became a hit serving the Pig's Trough (a giant banana split) and the Zoo (a huge platter of ice cream and toppings served on a stretcher that took two servers to hoist to your table) by adding to the atmosphere with waiters dressed in old-time soda fountain garb, a drum brigade marched around the parlor, and sometimes even a visiting marching band was on hand, but who became renowned for customer service coining the slogan "Give 'em the pickle" after a patron complained that he was refused an extra pickle unless he paid for it.
