LOS ANGELES (CBS) —Mark Lawrence Bavis and Garnet “Ace” Bailey were Kings scouts killed during the terrorist attacks on 9/11. As Los Angeles celebrated its first Stanley Cup Championship Thursday, one Kings fan in New York didn’t forget them.
Dave Krasne tweeted a photo of a Kings championship hat placed on the World Trade Center Memorial between their names Thursday.
“@lakingsinsider @helenenothelen as a kings fan in NYC, I couldn’t let Mark Bavis or Ace Bailey miss the festivities,” Krasne tweeted Thursday.
Bavis, 31, and Bailey, 53, were aboard United Airlines Flight 175, on their way to the Kings training camp.
In their memory, the Los Angeles Kings and Kings Care Foundation donated $250,000 to relief efforts for the families of fallen New York police officers and firefighters and have supported numerous fundraising efforts for the victims of 9/11.
