Turns out you can have it your way, even after you’re dead.

Funeral For Pennsylvania WWII Veteran Includes Procession Stop At Burger King

A York Pennsylvania war vet loved his Burger King so much his daughter had his funeral procession make one final stop at the before burying him.

Via NY Daily News reports:

David Kime Jr. “lived by his own rules,” daughter Linda Phiel said. He considered the lettuce on a burger his version of healthy eating, she said.

To give him a whopper of a send-off Saturday, the funeral procession stopped at a Burger King where each mourner got a sandwich for the road.

Kime got one last burger too, the York Daily Record reported. It was placed atop his flag-draped coffin at the cemetery.
Phiel said the display wasn’t a joke, rather a happy way of honoring her father and the things that brought him joy.
“He lived a wonderful life and on his own terms,” she said.

Kime, 88, a World War II veteran, died Jan. 20.

Restaurant manager Margaret Hess said she knew his face and his order. She and her crew made 40 burgers for the funeral procession.

“It’s nice to know he was a loyal customer up until the end — the very end,” she said.

No disrespect to the dead, but which do you think will decompose faster — him or the burger?
