Obituary - Xavier Vanmeter

Xavier Vanmeter passed away on March 31, 2021. He was born on November 12, 2019 in Pittsburg, KS to Corinna Fiala and Jeremy Vanmeter. Xavier was a happy boy. He loved to talk and would randomly start laughing. He was persistent and always had to be out front leading the way.

Xavier was a helper. He liked to help with laundry and throwing things in the trash. He was affectionately known as a little "trash panda" because he was just as likely to pull that same trash back out and walk around the house with his treasure.

Xavier loved food and was always ready to eat. He saw any trip to the kitchen as an opportunity for a snack and would be in his chair demanding one. He was an independent boy who loved animals and his brothers and sisters, as long as they shared their food. Xavier is survived by his parents; siblings, Ryon Lint, Violet Lint, Dominic Lint, and Adrianna Culp; grandparents, Kim Vanmeter and Cliff Rausch of Jasper, MO, Joseph Vanmeter of Sarasota, FL, and Tina Fiala and Roy Hibbs of Grove, OK. He is also survived by great-grandparents, Linda and Winford Connatser of Sarasota, FL, and James Vanmeter of Decatur, Illinois; Uncles Adam (Michelle) VanMeter of Sarasota, FL, Nathaniel (Dana Pryor) Fiala of Lamar, MO, and Colby Fiala of Joplin, MO; many cousins and other family members. The family would appreciate donations in lieu of flowers being made to cover funeral expenses. The family will receive visitors at Konantz Warden Funeral Home on Thursday April 8, 2021 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM. A funeral service will follow at 4:30 PM.
