York, PA – A Pennsylvania fast-food fad had one whopper of a funeral.
Family members say David Kime “lived by his own rules,” so it’s only fitting he’d have it his way on the way to the cemetery.
The hearse carrying the 88-year-old York man led his funeral procession through a Burger King drive-through for one last sandwich Saturday.
The York Daily Record reports one sandwich was placed atop his flag-draped coffin at the cemetery.
His daughter said it was a happy way to honor her father.
Restaurant manager Margaret Hess and her crew made 40 burgers for the funeral procession. She says it’s nice to know Kime was a loyal customer until “the very end.”
What great PR for Burger King. It shows you can eat their fast food and still live to the ripe old age of 88.
