Memorial for Patrick 'Scunny' McCusker' Today

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.
