He was dying to get a burger

Can you love burgers from beyond the grave? According to this story in the York Daily Record you can.

Funeral procession stops at Burger King drive-through Funeral procession stops at Burger King drive-through for one last Whopper in Manchester Township

On the way to his final resting place Saturday, David S. Kime Jr.’s loved ones took a spin through the Burger King drive-through on the corner of Route 30 and Pennsylvania Avenue for one last WHOPPER JR.

The 88-year-old West York man died Jan. 20 at York Hospital.

“He always lived by his own rules,” said Linda Phiel, one of Kime’s three daughters. “His version of eating healthy was the lettuce on the WHOPPER JR.”

As a tribute to a man who loved fast food, Phiel’s family stopped for some burgers on the way to the cemetery. Mourners followed the hearse carrying Kime’s flag-draped casket through the drive-thru. Each got a WHOPPER JR.

The sandwich was among Kime’s favorites.

“He liked his WHOPPER JRs.,” said Margaret Hess, head manager of the Manchester Township Burger King. She and her staff prepared 40 of the sandwiches for the funeral procession.
