YORK, Pa. (January 27, 2013)—Davie Kime, a Pennsylvania fast-food fan, "lived by his own rules" so it's only fitting he'd have it his way on the way to the cemetery, family members said.
The hearse carrying the 88-year-old York man led a funeral procession through a Burger King drive-thru for one last sandwich Saturday.
That final sandwich was placed atop his flag-draped coffin at the cemetery.
His daughter Linda Phiel said it was a happy way of honoring her father and the things that brought him joy.
Restaurant manager Margaret Hess and her crew made 40 burgers for the funeral procession.
She said it's nice to know Kime was a loyal customer until "the very end."
