“His version of eating healthy was the lettuce on the Whopper Jr.”
And that’s why Linda Phiel bought her father one last Whopper Jr. from Burger King. At. His. Funeral.
In fact, David S. Kime Jr.’s whole funeral procession went through a Burger King drive-thru, right there in the Manchester Township, in York County, Pennsylvania.
The drive-thru window served up 40 Whopper Jr.’s to funeral-goers, and one last one for Kime, which his daughter put on his casket.
Margaret Hess, the Burger King manager that oversaw the funeral procession’s drive-thru order, was quoted as saying that “it’s nice to know he was a loyal customer up until the end — the very end.” Eyes on the prize there, Marge.
Kime, a World War II vet, was kept in check by his wife for years until her death. He was a borderline diabetic and had a pacemaker.
Kime died on January 20 at the age of 88.
