Anonymous donor creates memorial for Las Vegas bus push victim
A new tree was planted Monday morning at the East Las Vegas Community Center and a plaque installed to honor 74-year-old Serge Fournier, the Las Vegas man who died after being pushed off a bus this spring.
A Las Vegas woman, who requested anonymity, donated $545 to pay for the tree and plaque, telling the City of Las Vegas that she wasn’t related to Fournier but admired his attitude, according to Jace Radke, the spokesman for the City of Las Vegas.
Thank you to the anonymous donor who paid for a memorial for @CityOfLasVegas resident Serge Fournier. Mr. Fournier tragically suffered fatal injuries when he was pushed off an @RTCSNV bus. Known as a kind man, a tree now grows for him at the East Las Vegas Community Center.
“(The donor) had watched the media coverage of the tragedy and she was very appreciative of his attitude of being kind to everyone,” Radke said. “She wanted it to be memorialized.”
