Leslie Buck, the designer of the iconic Greek coffee cup has died at age 87 of Parkinson’s disease at his Long Island home.

The coffee cup he designed was first introduced to New York City back in the 60′s and has since gone on to unofficially adorn T-shirts and other New York memorabilia.

It’s a shame that I never got to know who designed this coffee cup until the man had already passed, but at least now I know that Leslie Buck is responsible for it. If you want to remember him, you can purchase some of his Greek coffee cup designs at $36 for 100 cups & lids.
