Hearse hits BK drive thru to fulfil a dying wish

Even in death, some punters just have to have it their way.

A UK man fulfilled his dying wish in style when the hearse carrying his coffin stopped off at a Burger King so he could get one last Bacon Double Cheeseburger.

71-year-old Leonard Durkin passed away from heart failure on May 28 and requested to be taken to Burger King before he passed because that's where he regularly spent time with his son after the passing of his wife two years ago.

Leonard always got a Bacon Double Cheeseburger, and got to have it one last time as the hearse drove through the drive-thru of a Burger King in Leeds. The burger sat on top of Leonard's coffin for the remainder of the journey.

Leonard's son Peter told SWNS "Dad had a brilliant sense of humour and before he died he said he wanted to do this.

"He'll be having a good laugh about it from up there.

"We would always go and get something to eat after visiting the cemetery where my mum is.

"Every time we went to Burger King he'd get a Bacon Double Cheeseburger XL, so that was the one we got for him on the day of his funeral."

"People on the street and inside the restaurant were nearly snapping their necks to get a look at us.

"But the lady who served us at the window just acted like it was business as usual, she didn't even raise an eyebrow."

Leonard still had a few laughs in store for the rest of the ceremony, with Johnny Cash's 'Ring Of Fire' playing as his coffin passed through at the crematorium. What a legend and what a way to go out.
