Xavier Josias Robles “X” , 16, joined our Heavenly Father on October 27,2023. His loss has created a hole in hearts of those who knew and loved him. Xavier was born in Odessa, TX to Adrian Robles and Shada Reyes on January 5th, 2007. Although we were his parents he was blessed to have several parent figures in his life that loved him as their own.
He was an amazing son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend. Although they fought like cats and dogs Xavier and and his older brother Izais were truly best friends. Growing up they were inseparable. Xavier always made sure his younger siblings were being takin care of and protected and he was always standing up for kids at school when they were being bullied. He made sure to remind me how to parent since he knew better than I did. He would tell me “Mom, I’m the glue that holds this family together. Without me y’all would fall apart.” He was completely true about that.
He loved hanging out with his friends and playing football or going to the church to play basketball. He was always wanting to go fishing or go camp at Lake Van. He liked making himself projects like building a go-cart from nothing or trying to see how different things worked by taking them apart. Once he began working at Kymera and he couldn’t wait to grow up and pay his own bills. He wanted to live with Izais in a huge house and go to school for Business. He’d always say “Just watch Mom I’m gonna make it big. Bigger than you can imagine and I’ll buy you the house of your dreams.” My favorite story is when he was about 5 years old he went with his aunt and his papa to the Home Depot and he asked them to take him to the house isle cause he brought all his money to buy his momma a house. Then he proceeded to pull out coins from his tiny pocket. He was such a giver and had a heart of gold. He had such big dreams for himself. He can now spend his time working on our Mansion of Gold along side the Lord.
Xavier was shy and very sweet but he also had a humorous, outgoing side that he only showed when you got to know him. He loved with his whole heart. He never wanted to see someone cry he would do what he could to make you smile. He will be missed everyday with every breath.
