A US fast-food fan had one whopper of a funeral. Family members say David Kime ''lived by his own rules'' so it's  only fitting he'd have it his way on the way to the cemetery in York, Pennsylvania.

The hearse carrying the 88-year-old man led his funeral  procession through a Burger King drive-thru for one last sandwich Saturday.

The York Daily Record reports one sandwich was placed atop his  flag-draped coffin at the cemetery.Daughter Linda Phiel said it was a happy way of honouring her  father and the things that brought him joy.

Restaurant manager Margaret Hess and her crew made 40 burgers  for the funeral procession. She says it's nice to know Kime was a  loyal customer until ''the very end.''
