 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
The last few years of his life, after moving back to Mount Morris, NY, he was 100% disabled and spent his free time working on the house, watching TV with his pal "Boogie" in the living room, and collecting information for his extensive Geneology work.  Our family has so much information that he collected for over 20 years, and someday we'll find the time to go through it and maybe finish some of the work that he wasn't able to complete.  His last AMAZING legacy, was the deck he built between the house and garage in the summer of 2010.  The craftmanship is outstanding, and he did it by himself.  My mother told me after he died, how he would work on it for several hours, then be in absolute agony for the next couple days...then do it all over again.  He was determined to finish it. 

I look back on his 59 years and wonder how he accomplished much of what he did in so little time.  He wasn't a saint, but he left us a lot of memories to be proud of.  Thanks, Dad!

Your Son,

Gary C. Pike
