It was a tribute fit for a king for 88-year-old David S. Kime Jr. of West York, Pennsylvania. He was such a fan of fast food that after he passed away on January 20, his family decided to honor him with one final trip to a Burger King drive-thru before he was buried.
Kime's daughter, Linda Phiel,and other mourners in the funeral procession went through the drive-thru of a local Burger King Saturday and each ordered Kime's favorite burger, a Whopper Jr., in his honor, reports the York Daily Record.
Phiel said of her late father, "He always lived by his own rules. His version of eating healthy was the lettuce on the Whopper Jr." Phiel noted that her father pretty much ate what he wanted since her mother, Grace, died about 25 years ago. Phiel said, "My mother kind of kept him in check."
Phiel says she gave up trying to convince her father to change his diet. She said, "When you're 88 years old, I guess you've earned the right to do what you want to do."
At the cemetery, Phiel placed a Whopper Jr. on top of the flowers that adorned her father's casket.
