I had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Pike since the late 1960's, and I have so many wonderful memories of him. He was such a loving husband and father and friend. I especially remember how much he enjoyed sports and worked so hard at having fun and showing his family how to have fun as well. He was always active with his children and their friends. He spent many winters in which he worked so hard to turn his entire back yard into a skating / hockey rink. I was blessed to share many other times with him and his sons in playing basketball, playing catch with the baseball, learning just how good he was at table tennis, and water skiing. I also remember the joy he got from his impressive model train setup in the basement and the peace and joy that he got in just sitting down at his architecture table and drawing up plans for a new home design. I have always admired him and tried to follow the example he set as a loving Christian man. He touched so many lives in such a positive way. I will miss him very much, and will always cherish the memories.

I agree with Marcia Voet and He was always involved from sports to school plays and helping me with classes, he was quite a guy. We will miss him, but he will be remembered as a good friend. Duane Phillips.

High school friends are very special. They are forever young in our memory as we recall young carefree days. Memories like being together in a play or roasting hot dogs on a Lake Michigan beach Sharing the joys of marriage and children and being there as our families grew and children became adults with their own families. So thank you warner for sharing your life with us. We will miss you and will lovingly cherish happy memories.
