Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths. - Proverbs 3:5-6
Our husband, father, son, friend left this earthly life Tuesday morning, June 26, 2018 and went home to be with the Lord. Xavier made his grand entrance into the world June 19, 1976 in Winterville, NC and was born to an exuberant, doting mother, Patricia Simpson. He graduated from D. H. Conley High School where he was actively involved in sports. That same fervor for sports followed him throughout adulthood and he became an avid fan of the Green Bay Packers and the NC Tarheels basketball program.
He and his “best friend”, Tamika, were inseparable from the very moment they met at the bus stop one fall day in 1995 until eleven months later when they were united in marriage. Xavier worked at various jobs as a supportive military spouse but his culinary passion was always present. He even tried his hand as a restaurant owner. His interests took an about face and he later concentrated on what he could do to make the world a better place. He subsequently graduated from Central Piedmont Community College with an Associate Degree in Social Work, the helping profession.
He was one proud father and he used every moment as a teaching experience. He watched his sons mature into young men and still poured his love and wisdom into them with every fiber of his being. He adored his daughter and never complained about being “Uber Daddy”. His dream for his family was to put God first and be of service to others. He envisioned them all together in a family business of social workers and clinicians.
Cherishing his fond memories forever are: his best friend and devoted wife, Tamika; three children: Xavier (PJ), Christopher and Teaira; mother, Patricia Simpson Bryant; father, Alonzo Debmon; maternal grandfather, Morris Simpson; three sisters, three brothers; four aunts, four uncles, and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and best friends, Derrick Cooper and Gerald Lewis.A public viewing will be held on Thursday, June 28, 2018, from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM, at Boston's Mortuary 4300 Statesville Road, Charlotte, North Carolina 28269.
