Larry David Pike, 71, of Ranger, passed away on April 25, 2024. His funeral service at the Melton-Kitchens, Chapel of Memories will be held on May 1, beginning at 10 a.m. with Kyle Yeates officiating.

Larry was born to LT and Ruby Pike in Fort Worth, Texas, where he spent most of his childhood life until he moved to Glenwood Springs, Colorado, with his parents in 1964, where he went to Glenwood Junior High School from 1964-1967.

He returned to Fort Worth, Texas, to finish high school, where he graduated from Southwest High School in 1971.

Larry was a project man who loved working hard and with his hands. He worked for Longhorn Dodge as a Master Auto Body Repairman for several years before becoming a successful blue-collar businessman. Building Mockingbird Hill RV Park in Burleson, Texas, is where his dream and success came to fruition.

Larry made his home on his ranch in Ranger, Texas, where he spent countless hours building the home he loved. He enjoyed hunting, riding the CanAm, tinkering, or having a cold beer on the porch with many family, friends, and his three very best pals, Sugar, Roadie, and Ranger.

Larry loved the mountains and made memories to last a lifetime at his cabin, which he loved in Pitkin, Colorado. Larry had a “life is an adventure” attitude and lived every day of his life just that way, all gas and full throttle.

He was a matter-of-fact, tell-you-now type of man, and he stood for his faith, the love of his country, and his straightforward political views. Everyone knew when you brought it to his table, you were in for a fight, and chances are you were always wrong, and he was right.

Larry’s love for his family, friends, and best pals was unmeasurable. Knowing when he left this life, he left his mark in their heart to be reminded of his presence of all who loved him.

Larry is preceded in death by two of his best pals, Sugar and Roadie. His father and mother, L.T., and Ruby Pike.

He leaves behind the love of his life, Darilynn, his best pal, Ranger, his nephew, who he thought of as a son, Cody Pike, his wife, Christina, their children Braydan, Carolyn, Heather, and coming soon Colter. Son Paul, his wife Veronica and their children. His brother, Terry Pike and his wife Jeanie, niece Patrice Pike. Darilynn’s children Bandie Smith her husband Brice, Crissy Hollenbeck her husband Clay, Darell Smith his wife Kallie. Seven grandsons, two granddaughters and one great-granddaughter. Special friends, Weldon, Marty, Jack, Jim, Culle and Roanie.

For our family and friends near and far in addition to this service, we will be having a celebration of life at a later date in Pitkin, Colorado.

In lieu of flowers, donations to be made to the Stephens County Humane Society.
