GALLITZIN, Pa. — A Marine killed in Afghanistan last year has been honored by hometown officials who renamed a park after him.

Portage Street Park in Gallitzin was renamed Fabbri Park on Wednesday, the one-year anniversary of Lance Cpl. Ralph Fabbri's death. Fabbri was a combat photographer stationed at Camp Pendleton, Calif., when he was killed in combat.

The park now has a new sign featuring Fabbri's name, a picture of an American flag, the Marine Corps logo and a picture of Fabbri holding his camera.

Gallitzin is about 65 miles east of Pittsburgh. Fabbri was a 2008 graduate of nearby Penn Cambria High School.

Fabbri's father says he was "proud of him being a Marine."
