Former Solo Cup Co. President and Chief Executive Robert Hulseman died Dec. 21, 2017 at his home in Northfield, Illinois. He was 84.

No cause of death has been released.

An obituary on the funeral home's website credits Hulseman with developing the Red Solo Cup and the Traveler coffee cup lid.

Hulseman spent nearly 60 years with the foodservice packaging company started in 1936 by his father, Leo.

The company was based in Lake Forest, Illinois, and made disposable food and drink containers from paper, plastic and recycled materials.

The red plastic Solo Cup was introduced in the 1970s and has become a fixture at family gatherings and picnics.

Dart Container Corp. of Mason, Michigan, bought Solo Cup in 2012. The year before, the ubiquitous container was immortalized in an song by county music singer Toby Keith.

Can you get more party song than this? Toby Keith's well known "drinking song" does not conjure up pictures of trumpet quartets but this could be fun to play only because everyone recognizes the "Red Solo Cup, I fill you up, let's have a party, let's have a party" part of the song. Most of the words are spoken, not sung, and for that reason I had to come up with a melody which might come close to what it could have been if sung. The bass was added to give it more of a two beat party feel. A short Dixieland style section leads into a classical cadenza by the first trumpet featuring the traditional trill at the end. Then the bass introduces a <strong>very</strong> slow tempo which continues to speed up to the end.
