TILDEN TWP., Pa. - One of the co-founders of outdoor outfitter, Cabela's, has passed away.
The company says Richard Cabela died Monday at his home in Nebraska.
The company got its start in 1961 when Cabela bought $45 worth of fishing flies in Chicago.
That led to a catalog and eventually 50 stores in North America.
Cabela was 77 years-old.
The chain has a location in Tilden Township.
