Bethel Park, police communities support Fabus family
Church bells rang, and wet, cold snow fell on dozens of Bethel Park residents who lined Brightwood Road, many holding “Stay Joey Strong” signs, the morning of Jan. 26 as at least 30 police departments' vehicles led a funeral procession to St. Bernard's Church in Mt. Lebanon. The community came out to support the family of 8-year-old Joey Fabus, who died from an inoperable brain tumor. Police as far away as Wheeling, W. Va., joined AAA vehicles and local police from Peters, Mt. Lebanon and Scott townships who drove past supporters as young as 5 years old.
