J.R. Simplot's Legacy

Family confirms Simplot's hat is missing after service

The Sunday afternoon memorial service at Qwest Arena paid tribute to J.R. Simplot and started its own mini-mystery - the disappearance of the spud magnate's signature hat.

The hat was included in a memorial arrangement at the service. After the service, it disappeared.

A Simplot family spokesperson confirmed Tuesday morning that the hat still was missing.
