Father John Scalabrini, the departed foster father of singer Jose Chameleone’s wife Daniella Atim Mayanja was laid to rest yesterday at a cemetery at St James Catholic Church, Biina.
It was grief and tears as many mourners especially from Catholic parishes of Bbina, Butabika, Kitintale saying the deceased will be greatly remembered for founding kindergartens, schools and colleges, including Bishop Cipriano Kihangire Primary School and Bishop Cipriano SSS in Luzira.
It should be noted, Fr John died of cancer on Tuesday morning at St Francis Hospital, Nsambya in Kampala, where he had been admitted for close to a week. We have learned that Father John had been battling cancer of the bone for the last five years.
May his soul rest in eternal peace
