I remember growing up with Xander. Xander and I both went to the same school, the same church and we both attended job corps together. I remember that he had a good heart. Every time I needed to talk he was always there for me, it didn’t matter what it was about. He stayed the same since I met him nothing ever changed. He was one of my best friends and I will always love and remember him.

It's hard to imagine life without someone who was so alive. My brother was bright and energetic. As a kid with all that spunk he was a handful. We all just knew with his strong will he was going to be some sort of leader. As he grew he channeled that energy into art and he was writing a book. I have one of his first ones. He was talented. He built people up and loved to help those in need. He was especially popular with the elderly, children, and the youth group. Xander looked at the world differently. He had a beautiful mind and a loving heart. Not to mention he was the best uncle my kids could ask for. He always played with the kids and listened to them. He was the uncle that takes you to the park and plays down on the floor with you while the rest of the grown ups talk. They miss him so much. This hole in our hearts is huge. Until we meet again baby brother. I love you.

I was Xander’s substitute teacher in 9th grade. He was always one of my favorite kids. So full of life, funny, and sweet. Unforgettable. Such a tragedy to lose him. My deepest sympathy to his loved ones.

Xander loved to help those in need. Our elderly and health impaired neighbors, the children of the neighborhood, teens at job job Corp who were troubled at home or in need of friendship and family. There is no greater legacy to be remembered for than kindness to others. I am so proud to be his mother. Until I see you again my beautiful boy. I love and remember you always.
