Ramirez died last month in Lubbock, Texas. He was known around town as Roswell’s "Lawnmower Man" because he sat outside the city's Saint Andrews Church for nearly 50 years and mowed lawns to make money.

After he died, a white lawnmower memorial suddenly sprang up near the church in his honour. A day later, it was stolen.

The new memorial comes with a note urging people to leave the lawnmower in place.
