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.

Witnesses told police that Cadesha Bishop, 25, pushed Fournier off the Regional Transportation Center bus on March 21, after he asked her “to be nicer to the passengers” because she was yelling profanities, according to an arrest report from the Metropolitan Police Department.

“(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.”
