Xaviar Figueras


Age 56, passed away January 23, 2014 in Lansing. Xaviar was born April 20, 1957 in Lansing, the son of Louis and Dolores (Rodriquez) Figueras. He retired from General Motors in 2008 after 30 years of service. Xaviar graduated from Michigan State University with a teaching degree in mathematics in 2009. He taught math at both East Lansing Middle School and Everett High School. With his passion for music and his love of guitar, he promoted music venues with his company, X-Jam Showcase, in the Tri-State area. Xaviar loved puttering in his yard, camping and going to the drive-in theater. He was a true cat lover and enjoyed traveling to Finland.

Xaviar was preceded in death by his mother, Dolores and stepmother, Betty. Surviving are the love of his life, Hanna; father, Louis; brothers, Marcellus (Melinda) Figueras and Oscar (Tia) Figueras; sisters, Violet (Charles) Hawkins and Rosa Piotrowicz; step-sister, Carol Weir; many nieces and nephews; and his furry "kids", Woody and Sally.
