Service for Thomas Earl Pike, son of Edward Raymond Pike and Dorothy Matlock Pike, will be held Tuesday, August 23, 2016, at 11 a.m. at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, with the Rev. Robert Fowler presiding. Visitation will follow in the parish hall. Mr. Pike died on Thursday, August 18, 2016, after a long battle with heart disease and diabetes. Tom grew up in Birmingham, attended West End High School, and was an Eagle Scout. He attended the University of Alabama in Birmingham where he was a founding member of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. He went on to earn a Bacheler's of Psychology and a Master's in Hospital Administration from UAB, and worked in the field of health administration for many years. Tom married Jill Campbell in 1978, and their family includes Ben Pike (Megan), Oxford; Caroline Pike, Norfolk, Virginia; Owen Pike, Athens, Georgia; and David Pike, Jacksonville. He is survived by his wife, Jill; his brother, Raymond Pike (Claudia), Montgomery; many nieces and nephews; and his dogs, Cooper and Fritz. Tom loved spending time with his family, and his church, St. Luke's Episcopal Church, where he was involved in Education for Ministry, on the vestry, taught Sunday school, and was in the choir. He also loved his community, and was very active in civic organizations such as Red Cross, United Way, and Rotary Club in earlier years. He had a passion for cooking, local and national politics, coins, Junior Achievement and Auburn football. He loved to read. The family would like to extend their deepest thanks to their church family and many friends who have supported and encouraged them during this illness. Also, special thanks and gratitude to Regional Medical Center of Alabama and the medical staff who cared for him for so long. All of you cared for him with great tenderness and skill, and his family is deeply grateful. Memorials may be given to St. Luke's Episcopal Church in his name.
