Nevada’s governor has ordered that U.S. and state flags be flown at half-staff at the State Capitol and state public buildings on Monday in honor of magician Roy Horn, of the famed Las Vegas act of Siegfried & Roy.

The 75-year-old Horn died in a Las Vegas hospital on May 8 of complications from the coronavirus. Gov. Steve Sisolak said Horn’s work helped elevate Las Vegas’ status in the entertainment world and that the state is proud to honor him.

Siegfried Fischbacher said Horn would be honored by the gesture and by the state where the duo lived their dreams. Horn was a native of Germany. He was critically injured in 2003 by one of the act’s white tigers.
