WEST YORK, Pa., Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Family members of a Pennsylvania man who loved Burger King said they took his funeral procession through the drive-through.

Linda Phiel, one of the three daughters of West York man David Kime Jr., who died at the age of 88 Jan. 20, said her father enjoyed fast food daily, so the family took his funeral procession through the Burger King drive-through Saturday for one last Whopper Jr., the York Daily Record reported Monday.

"He always lived by his own rules," Phiel said. "His version of eating healthy was the lettuce on the Whopper Jr."

Margaret Hess, head manager of the Manchester Township Burger King, said the funeral procession ordered 40 of the sandwiches.

"They also wanted one for the deceased," Hess said.

Phiel said she placed Kime's final the Whopper Jr. atop her father's casket before it was buried.
