A man who had an affinity for fast food made one final trip to the Burger King drive-thru for a Whopper Jr. before being laid to rest in Pennsylvania.

David S. Kime Jr. loved the popular fast food chain, so much so that his daughter made sure that the his funeral proceeding made a pit stop at Burger King to purchase 40 Whopper Jr. burgers, including one for him to be buried with.

“His version of eating healthy was the lettuce on the Whopper Jr,” said Linda Phiel, Kime’s daughter.

Saturday’s funeral was organized in part by the Burger King in Manchester Township, one Kime frequented.

“He liked his Whopper Jrs,” said head manager Margaret Hess, who prepared 40 of the burgers for the funeral.

“They also wanted one for the deceased,” said Hess to the York Daily Record.

Since his wife, Grace, died 25 years ago, Kime ate what he wanted.

“My mother kind of kept him in check,” Phiel said. “When she died, for a while, he would eat with us. But he considered us health freaks because we ate things that were green, like broccoli.”

Kime was described by his family as one who “lived by his own rules.”

Kime had become borderline diabetic towards the end of his life, and doctors told him a healthier diet would help him live longer, advice he did not heed.
