Carlian ,Shoy !Vixon

1966-1994

Carlian Shoy Nixon, better known as "Calba" or "Scarface" was born
on September 17,1966 to Michael and Esterzie Nixon. He was the oldest
of three children and the only boy. Carlian spent his early years on St.
Thomas.
He later relocated to St. Croix, during the summer of 1979, to live with
his aunt and family. While living with his aunt, attending church with
his cousins was a must Carlian met many of his first friends on St. Croix
at the First Assembly of God Church where he actively participated in
many of the church's youth activities.
However, Carlian's interests changed. They changed from girls, to
bikes, to cars, to horses, to boats, to dogs, to cock fighting and the list
continues. He always approached his interest at the time with vigor and
diligence. Many can remember, during his tenure as a fisherman, when
Carlian was featured in the St. Croix Avis for catching the largest crab
ever in the Virgin Islands.
For those that knew him, it was clear that at an early age Carlian made
up his mind to do things his way. He lived his life to the fullest, doing
exactly what he wanted to do. Carlian made no excuses for his actions,
nor did he shy away from them. It was this attitude that enabled Carlian
to gain the respect and admiration of many of his peers. Carlian was
constantly on the go as he continuously sought new challenges. Carlian
can best be remembered for his handsome smile.

Mommy: Why did God take our Daddy?
My children, God did not take your daddy. He was destroyed by the
hands of wicked men. If you trust God and serve Him here on earth,
some day you will see your daddy again. Your daddy has gone on to be
with Jesus. He is God's angel up there in the sky. He was wearing a
crown in glory. You will see him in the sweet bye and bye. Your daddy
was kind and so gentle, so precious, so pure and so true. He loved you,
his two little children and you are God's angels too.
Comfort to Shoy and Scan Nixon

To Carlian, my love. Why, is the question You left without saying
good-bye. We may not understand, but God knows why. I will always
remember your love and care. You are an angel in the sky, watch over
your children and I. May you rest in peace, my love.
Jacqueline Kiture

Son... today, our hearts are full of joy and sorrow. Joy, for bringing
you into this world. Sorrow, that you have been taken away from us so
senselessly. We can't help but laugh when we think of all the fun thing
we did together and the places we went. Then our eyes fill with tears,
because you have been temporarily taken away from us. The phone will
ring, but it will not be you. Our door will be opened, but it will not be you
who will walk in. We had something that money was never able to buy,
nor can any man rob. We had an unconditional love that is seldom found
in today's world. Farewell, but not good-bye. May your soul rest in
peace.
Your mother and father, Estezie Mabe Nixon and Michael Nixon

To our Brother... It was truly great to have you as a brother. The love
and care you showed us will always be remembered. Our eyes were
filled with tears when we got the news, but we've come to an under-
standing that you are now an angel in the sky watching over us. Brother
your spirit still remains, but your presence is gone. Rest in peace.
Your loving sisters, Dawn, Joy, and Kinisha Nixon
