Allan Nkoba died tragically on Sunday, May 30th, 2021, after injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident. He was 37 years old.

Allan was born on the 7th of September 1983 to the Late Joe Nkoba Kairumba and Mrs. Marian Katumba Wasula. He went to school at Kampala Parents School, Aga Khan School, St. Lawrence High School in Uganda and Roxbury Community College, USA. Allan worked at Mt. Auburn Hospital for 4 years and was currently at Cambridge Health Alliance as part of the Emergency Department Team.

Allan is survived by his parents, Mr. James Wasula and Mrs. Marian Katumba Wasula, his two children, 13-year-old Rhaesha Nkoba and 6 months old Ethan Allan Nkoba, his sister Immaculate Gonza Nkoba, brother Joseph Kakumba Nkoba, brother Charles Semwezi Wasula and, several paternal and maternal cousins, aunts, and uncles.

In the later part of his career, Allan served as a longtime Patient Access Representative (PAR II) at the CHA Cambridge Hospital Emergency Department. He joined Cambridge Hospital, Boston, Mass in 2009 and quickly became one of the pillars of the Cambridge Emergency Department. He greeted everyone with kindness and a smile, and his colleagues and patients and their families all felt the warmth of his personality. He was well known across the Cambridge campus. Allan was a respected and valued member of the ED team who served as a role model and resource to everyone.

Allan was such an amazing human being. He was a beautiful soul with a light-hearted spirit and an immeasurable sense of humor. He loved music, and jokes and brought so much laughter and joy to so many. His friends and family called him, “Ice”, “Balafu”, “Rasta Man” …. You could simply never be angry at the man.

Allan was very respectful, hardworking and a great father. He truly loved his children Ethan and Rhaesha and spent time with them. To Rhaesha he was "Dada”. He taught her that “God can never give you more than you can handle”.

He will be missed by all especially his family, friends, co-workers, and the entire community.
May his soul rest in eternal peace,
