Food entrepreneur Jeno Paulucci, the founder of several Minnesota-based companies and the first chairman of R.J. Reynolds Food Co., has died at the age of 93.
Paulucci died at his Duluth home on Thanksgiving, just four days after his wife of 64 years, Lois, 89, had died, the Duluth News Tribune reported. She also had died in their home.
The son of Italian immigrants, including a father who was an iron miner, Paulucci was born in Aurora and grew up in Hibbing. Despite his business success, Paulucci would say later in life, “I’m just a peddler from the Iron Range.”
