Brian Mejia Paxtor, 12 años, de Lexington, Nebraska, falleció el 24 de julio de 2023 en el condado de Gosper como resultado de un accidente automovilístico.

Nació el 18 de agosto de 2010 en Lexington, Nebraska, hijo de Jesús Mejía y Ana Paxtor Mejía. Brian tocó las vidas de quienes lo rodeaban con su risa contagiosa, su corazón amable y su amor por la aventura. Brian era un nino muy respetoso, responsable y tenia mucha disciplina.

Desde muy joven, Brian demostró un afán por aprender y explorar el mundo. Asistió al preescolar en Lexington antes de mudarse a Chicago para la escuela primaria.

Pasó sus últimos días disfrutando el rato con sus amigos más cercanos en la feria y jugando baloncesto.

Sus comidas favoritas incluían Baleadas, Tamales Rojos Mexicanos, McDonald's McChicken's y Reece's Peanut Butter Cups, golosinas que siempre le hacían sonreír.

Brian apreciaba pasar tiempo con amigos y participar en muchas actividades deportivas. Desde patear una pelota de fútbol con el Lexington Unifut Soccer Club y hasta jugar baloncesto con sus amigos, siempre disfrutó de la compañía que venía con los deportes de equipo. Tuvo muchos éxitos en varios aspectos de su vida, pero sus logros más orgullosos de Brian se lograron a través de su participación en el Lexington Unifut Soccer Club. Durante los últimos tres años, representó con orgullo a los equipos Lex Dreamers U14A & B cargando el numero #29 en honor a su admiración a Kylian Mbappé. Su dedicación, habilidad y espíritu inquebrantable en el campo lo convirtieron en un valioso compañero de equipo y una fuente de inspiración para otros.
