Donations sought for zoo memorial honoring Robert Becker


Garden City, KS( In November the Garden City Commissioners approved renaming the Lion Habitat at Lee Richardson zoo after a Garden City man. Robert Becker was killed in a motorcycle accident on October 7.

Donations are now being sought for the plaque that will honor Becker. The lion habitat will be renamed “Bubba’s Cathouse”.  Becker worked at the zoo for 29 years. Tom Dial is trying to raise $1,000 for the plaque. Anything received over that amount will go to Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo.

Donations can be dropped off at the Zoo office at 312 East Finnup Drive or at Western Kansas Broadcast Center at 1402 E. Kansas Avenue.
