The funeral ceremony of the couple, Omena and Makeda Ubiaro, who died two months apart took place today in London.
Omena died on Monday September 4, 2017 in a Wolverhampton hospice, ahead of his wife’s funeral – who died of the same disease two months earlier.
Mr Ubiaro spent his final months raising money for his five children aged seven to 19 – fearing they would become orphans.
His wife Makeda Ubiaro, 38, died on July 29 this year after she was diagnosed with bowel cancer in August 2016.
Omena and Makeda met as teenagers while studying at St Francis Xavier College in Clapham, South London.
They married in 2004 and moved to Birmingham in 2009.
The devoted dad’s gofundme page has now almost reached £30,000.
