Overby-Sheppard Elementary mourns tragic loss of 10-year-old student: 'Our gentle giant has left'

A Richmond elementary school community is rallying around the family of one of their students after the 10-year-old “gentle giant” passed away suddenly last week. Xavier Holman, a student at Overby-Sheppard Elementary, was a loving, caring, and joyful boy who loved to draw characters from “Sonic the Hedgehog” by hand, according to his grandmother Gwen Holman. He was known for his artistic flair and big smile.
