Emmanuel Lubega Muwonge, 65, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin passed away on May 7, 2022, surrounded by his family. Beloved husband of Florence Muwonge (nee Katende), loving father of Sarah and Andrew Muwonge. He is also survived by his younger brothers, Godfrey Muwonge (Rita Luswata-Muwonge) and Edwin Muwonge, sisters Monica, Maria, and Annette, and a host of other relatives and friends. Emmanuel is preceded in death by his parents, Felix and Elizabeth (nee Nabakooza) Muwonge, his sisters Sarah, Imelda and Solome Muwonge, and his younger brother, Felix Muwonge.
Although Sickle Cell disease was his lifelong battle, Emmanuel ultimately succumbed to Colon Cancer. Despite his sudden diagnosis in March 2022, he never complained and remained both positive and hopeful, and was determined to fight until the end.
