Dante Benedict Manga Baja was born 27 weeks premature and blessed the world at 2:06AM on May 9, 2022 at Sentara Leigh Hospital. He was transported directly to the NICU at Sentara Princess Anne Hospital to be cared for. He fought hard for two long days and waited for his mother to be discharged from the hospital. As soon as his parents arrived to see him, he passed peacefully in his mother’s arms on May 11, 2022 at 7:37PM.
Dante will be forever loved by his parents Bernadette & Dean Albert Baja; his older brother Damian Bernard Baja, his 3 grandparents; Digna Baja and Juliet & Normandy Manga, his 2 aunts; Mary Aldee Baja and Bridgette Manga, and uncle Normandy Manga Jr.
Dante brought endless joy to his family before and after his passing. His family now has another guardian angel looking over them. Like the meaning behind his name, Dante’s love will be everlasting.
