A drive-thru funeral is how family and friends celebrated the life of David S. Kime, an 88-year-old resident of York. Can you imagine how long the line was?

This funeral service is probably the most creative and ironic send off I've heard of to date.

The recently deceased was allegedly a fast food fanatic. His daughter, Linda Phiel, said that she lectured her father about his "unhealthy" eating habbits but he "lived by his own rules".

Phiel continued to say that the only healthy thing her father probably ate was the lettuce of his hamburger.

Kime rarely went a day without having his favorite item off the menu, a Whopper Jr.

Despite his love for other fast foods, he always remained partially inclined to the high caloried snack.

Margaret Hess, the general manager of the Manchester Township Burger King restaurant said she didn't personally know Kime but she recognized his face from his frequent visits.

"He liked his Whopper Jrs," Hess said.

However, I don't think the Whopper Jrs really liked him. Kime died January 20th of heart complications.

Nonetheless, family and friends will be toasting the life of Kime with Whopper Jrs.

Hess has prepared 40 burgers and one for the deceases when family memebers called ahead to make drive-thru reservations.

Phiel will place his favorite sandwich on top of his casket before it's lowered in.

She continued to say that his funeral was not meant to make light, but to honor her father.

"All of us are going to be in this position ... And I think there's a certain group who think we should be crying. But on the other hand, he lived a wonderful life and on his own terms," Phiel continued.
