VARINA, Va., June 15 (UPI) -- Country music star and sausage entrepreneur Jimmy Dean is to be interred in a piano-shaped mausoleum on his property in Varina, Va., CMT.com reported.

Dean died of natural causes Sunday at his Virginia home. He was 81.

Funeral services are to take place Monday at Grove Avenue Baptist Church in Richmond, Va., after which Dean will be entombed in the $350,000 granite mausoleum he purchased several years ago, CMT.com said.

It is expected to be inscribed with the epitaph, "Here lies one hell of a man," a reference to Dean's 1961 hit, "Big Bad John."
