Adrian Leslie Pike, September 26, 1989 ~ April 6, 2021
Vershire, Vermont: A memorial service for Adrian Pike, age 31, Cherokee Troop 2-1 CAV, 4-2 Stryker Brigade Combat Team, U.S. Army was held Saturday April 17 with immediate family and friends at the Hale Funeral Home in Bradford.
Adrian or Age as he was often called was remembered by not only family and friends present but by his Platoon mates in letters and e-mails to the family. The words Compassionate, Caring, Honorable, and Dedicated were oft repeated by these fellow soldiers as well as “Goofy”, Gentle Giant, and Best Beard. Most mentioned his leadership that got them all through tough times.
He was a soldier, defender, protector and friend to all.
Adrian leaves a tremendous hole in his cloud of family and friends who surrounded his life, and his memory will be cherished forever. Adrian is survived by so many loving family members who cherished him. Mom, Scott, Dad, Sharon, his champion and older brother Nick, his defenders and twin sisters, Kassie and Courtney, his niece and nephew Brooklynn and Garrison (his mini me), both of whom he adored, and so many others too numerous to list, from great friends to his military brothers. He will be so very missed, by so many.
The family desires that anyone wishing to honor Adrian do so by donations to the TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) Warrior Foundation. https://www.tbiwarriorfoundation.org/donate/in-memory-of-donation
