An abandoned box containing human ashes found at a California car wash Monday has been claimed by an Orange County family.

XETV“The ashes are those of Henry Lefebvre. He was born in October of 1900. He died in May of 1997.”

Lefebvre was a running back at USC and scored the very first touchdown at the Colosseum in Los Angeles. He later became a millionaire after inventing the ping pong net.

KNX says the box had reportedly been at the Ocean Beach car wash for 6 months before the owner found it Monday—17 years after Lefebvre’s death.

And no one can figure out how Lefebvre's ashes ended up there. In fact, his nephew Gil Lefebvre told ABC News his family thought he was buried. They even attended a funeral with the casket.

“Just think about it, they buried the guy and they have a ceremony and Henry pops up in San Diego. What do you say? You just go, ‘What?!’”
