David S. Kime Jr. was a very loyal customer to the Burger King chain, so much so that his family decided to make the Manchester Township location in Pennsylvania a pit stop during the war vet’s funeral procession.
“He liked his Whopper Jrs.,” said store manager Margaret Hess. “”It’s nice to know he was a loyal customer up until the end — the very end.”
Every one of the mourners got a burger in honor of the 88-year old man who died of heart failure. They even got one for him to keep him happy in the grave.
“His version of eating healthy was the lettuce on the Whopper Jr.” explained his daughter, Linda Phiel, who also says her father refused to give up his fast food. “He would say, ‘I won’t live longer, it will just seem like it because I’ll be more miserable faster’.”
And so his coffin, draped in the American Flag for the man who was awarded the purple heart medal for his service during World War 2, was laid to peace with his favorite meal close at hand… and one is going to decompose faster than the other. [ Source ]
