The friends and relatives of World War II veteran David Kime arranged a trip for his funeral hearse to make a stop at a Burger King restaurant drive-thru in Pennsylvania.
Each passenger in the hearse picked up a Whopper Jr burger at the drive-thru, according to The AP.
Mr Kime also received his own favourite Whopper meal, which was placed on his coffin in the cemetery.
His daughter Linda Phiel said: "He lived a wonderful life and on his own terms."
She explained that her father - who died on January 20 aged 88 - had eaten whatever he fancied after his wife Grace passed away 25 years ago.
"My mother kind of kept him in check. 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."

Ms Phiel continued to say that her father refused to alter his diet despite being a diabetic and having a pacemaker fitted.
She said her father told her: "I won't live longer, it will just seem like it because I'll be more miserable faster."
The manager of the Pennsylvania Burger King said she was happy to have Mr Kime as a loyal customer.
"It's nice to know he was a loyal customer up until the end - the very end," Margaret Hess said.
