"He always lived by his own rules," said Linda Phiel, referring to her father David S. Kime Jr. "His version of eating healthy was the lettuce on the Whopper Jr."
A life-long lover of having it his way, Kime naturally made Burger King his fast food joint of choice.
"My mother kind of kept him in check," Phiel told the York Daily Record. "When she died, for a while, he would eat with us. But he considered us health freaks because we ate things that were green, like broccoli."
Margaret Hess, manager of the Manchester Township Burger King, was in the restaurant Saturday, when a hearse suddenly showed up at the drive-thru window.
She and her staff prepared 40 Whopper Jrs. in all for the mourners.
"They also wanted one for the deceased," Hess said. "It's nice to know he was a loyal customer up until the end — the very end."
"All of us are going to be in this position," Phiel told the Daily Record. "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."
