Kenneth passed away on Wednesday, February 14, 2024, at Russell Medical Center. He was born on May 5, 1947, in Alexander City to James Thurston Pike and Donna Lee Woodruff Pike. Kenneth loved his Lord and was a faithful member of Family Worship Center. He proudly served his country as a sergeant in the United States Army.

In his free time, Kenneth enjoyed a variety of hobbies – hunting, fishing, golfing, camping, traveling, and drinking a good cup of coffee. He was known for his kindness and generosity, especially through his gardening where his harvest supplied fresh vegetables for family and others in the community. Kenneth was a family man who found the greatest joy in spending time with his family. Affectionately known as “Paw Paw,” his grandchildren and great-grandchildren held the highest place in his heart. His loyalty, love, and generous heart will never be forgotten by those who knew him.

Kenneth is survived by his daughter, Kellie Pike (Otis) Worley; sons, Jospeh M. Pike, Brian D. Pike; grandchildren, Jana Worley, Jacob (Nikki) Worley, Kaylan P. (Chance) Miles, Austin (Delfina) Pike, Megan Pike (Jace) Harper, Alex (Dana) Sharpe, Liam Worley; great-grandchildren, Jake Harper, Wrenley, Josie, Lilly, Kaydan, Zoey, Aurora Jane, Oakley, Kelby, Janice-Lynn, Baby Miles; brother, James (Deborah) Pike; sister, Dinah (Darryl) Thomas; sister, Jo Sue (Charles) Sasser; several nieces and nephews; and special friend, David (Kathy) Welcher.
