RIP: Arch West, best remembered as the former Frito-Lay marketing exec who gave the world Doritos, passed away in Dallas last week at the age of 97.

The story goes that West, a VP of Marketing for the Dallas-based food company Frito-Lay at time, stumbled upon a vendor selling fried tortilla chips while vacationing in San Diego with his family in 1961.
