He's credited for turning Canton into a Baltimore hotspot, and Wednesday... those who knew Patrick "Scunny" McCusker said their final goodbyes.
His funeral mass was held at the Cathedral of St. Mary Our Queen at 10:30 a.m.
Friends and family stopped by a funeral home in Towson all night Tuesday to pay their respects.
Scunny died last Friday in a bike accident in Ocean City.
"It's hard to quantify what we've lost," said Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. "Scunny was a force of nature. He was a rare individual who lived with passion and with love for his community -- selflessly."
The mayor said she lost a friend in Scunny that helped transform a community.
Mccusker owned several restaurants in Canton, including Nacho Mama's.
The Boh car that he made famous will actually be seen at the Grand Prix this weekend.
In honor of Scunny, all the bars and restaurants in Canton square are donating parts of their sales Wednesday to his "Believe in Tomorrow Foundation."
He was 49 years old.
