Xavier Reson Lemmon, age 10, passed away on Tuesday January 30th, 2024 in Chandler, Arizona due to complications from a previously unknown heart condition. He was born October 20th, 2013 in Kirkland, Washington and moved to Chandler, Arizona 2.5 years ago. He was the youngest of 3 children. He attended Kenmore Elementary in Kenmore, Washington for kindergarten and 1st grade and Haley Elementary School in Chandler, Arizona for 2nd through 4th grade.
He excelled in math. He was a great cheerleader for his friends. He loved to be silly, striking poses, and cracking punny jokes. His favorite game was Uno Flip and he took it to school to teach friends and teachers how to play. He also loved popcorn, video games, and the color cyan. In the last few months of his life, he made over 60 videos that he wanted to post on YouTube under the handle Xavierfunz as soon as he turned 13. His goals were to drive cars (preschool), fly a plane, have infinite money, gain weight (third grade) and be a YouTuber (fourth grade).
He is survived by his parents Daniel and Annaliese (Andy) Lemmon, a sister Rachel, and a brother Joseph. Also, grandparents Paul and Sherry Work of Oregon, and Deborah Lemmon of Idaho, great grandmother Dayonne Work of Texas, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins who will miss him dearly.
