He was born on June 23, 1980 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the son of Larry Charette and Avis Little

Xavier was always a ray of light, he was never a fan of conflict.  He loved to make people laugh, every morning he would make breakfast and coffee.  His best quality was loving kids.  He would even crawl on the floor just the see them smile and laugh.

Xavier’s most prized possession was his son Savion Nelson of Blackduck – everything and anything, holidays especially, he would get him an X-Box, PS4, shoes.  He did his best and always talked about him and was so happy when Savion came to visit.  His son, he’ll always watch over.

At a young age, Xavier aka “X” went to live with Rupert “Jumbo” and Delora Downwind and they loved him as their own.   His sister, Sherry also came to live with them and they were taught so much – they were made for each other and loved to help.

Go home now brother, they’ve been waiting.  We all adored your ways and we love you.

Survived by son Savion Nelson; sisters Sherry Little, Karla Downwind, Amber Downwind; nieces Nyomi Barrett, Randy Barrett, baby girl Tyra Barrett, Angel & Bronson, Tyler Deane, Hailey & baby Benson; Aunt Paula Little; many brothers; other relatives and friends.
