Details of June Bug's final hours emerged across the Internet yesterday (March 30).
Snoop Dogg's uncle June Bug passed away Sunday morning after holding on almost a week longer than doctors expected ... and Snoop was the last person to see him. June Bug's nephew Daz Dillinger tells TMZ ... his uncle died around 9:30 am -- and it happened right after Snoop arrived for a visit. We're told J.B. happily acknowledged Snoop's presence ... then passed on. As we previously reported, June Bug was given one day to live last week after succumbing to colon cancer ... but he was clearly a fighter. (TMZ)
Snoop broke the initial sad news about his uncle to over 11.2 million Twitter followers earlier this month.
"rip uncle junebug . greatest to ever do it !!! heaven wouldn't be the same without u !," Snoop tweeted March 21. (Snoop Dogg's Twitter)
