Fernandez worked closely with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies to combat drug distribution and related violence in each of Rockland’s towns and villages.

Xavier was a huge foodie, loved country music and spending time with his family and friends. He is survived by his devoted and loving sister Marleny Fernandez, and his beloved niece Mikayla. He is predeceased by his parents, Pedro and Melania Fernandez. Xavier is loved and will forever be remembered by his aunts, uncles, cousins, colleagues, and friends.
