We are sad to announce the passing of Sizo Vusumuzi Mhlanga, who was lovingly called “Vusa.”  Vusa Mhlanga was born on August 1, 1991 in Mashava, Zimbabwe, and passed away on April 11, 2022 in Omaha, NE.  He is survived by his parents, Sithabile Mabel Ndebele and Melusi Mhlanga; two brothers, Mvikeli (Kindra) and Mzingaye; five sisters: Yvonne (Andrew), Yvette (Grant), Michelle (Ricardo), Laura, and Lorraine; nieces: Lalelani, Zanele, Anashe, Tafadzwa, and Esme; nephews: Gabriel, Gabriel, Euan, and Xola; uncles, Sibusiso (Felistas) and Mandlenkosi (Thembiso); aunts, Precious (Nathan) and Pikiswa ; maternal cousins: Victor, Victoria, Vincent, Batsirai, Mufaro, Sifiso, Thando, Tito, Naledi, Nandi, Thandeka, and Munyaradzi; paternal cousins: Sibongile, Sindiso, Nozipho, Mpumelelo, Thabani, Nobukhosi, Sbonokuhle, Vukani, Linda, Sakhile, Phakamile, and  Malcom.

Vusa graduated from Maple Wood Adventist Academy in 2009. After that he worked at PayPaL as a Tax Specialist for ten years. He was an avid basketball player who loved the Houston Rockets, Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL, Syracuse Orangemen in NCAA basketball, and Nebraska Cornhuskers in NCAA football.  His favorite pastimes included watching and playing basketball and football with friends and family. He loved spending quality time with friends and family alike.

Vusa was a man with a big heart. He loved everyone and, in turn, was loved by everyone. He was passionate about family and sports. If he could mix the two together, that was the perfect day, outing, or event. His life goal was to live a quiet contented life enjoying the company of those he loved. His engaging smile and welcoming heart will be missed. Anyone who came in contact with Vusa always remembered him because he was just that kind of person. He was more than just a son, a friend, or a brother. He was the breath of fresh air, the warmth of the sun’s rays, the punchline of a funny joke. All this and so much more. He will be sorely missed by those he leaves behind.
