Pike Obituaries

On this page I am collecting various Pike obituaries (particularly for Pikes with Newfoundland ancestry), and sometimes also obituaries that mention Pikes. This page is not meant to be a complete set of Pike obituaries, but serves as a place where I can collect together those obituaries that I occasionally extract from newspapers, etc. At some point I might try to sort these into some meaningful order, but for now it is best to suppose that they are more or less random in order.

If you came to this page directly, then you might want to know that I have additional information about the Pike families of Newfoundland on my website.

From a March 2005 post to NFLD-ROOTS-L, apparently quoting the Daily News of 18 January 1907:
Richard Hayward Taylor

The Angel of Death has been busy, and although the year is but a fortnight old, several veterans have been called to their reward.

At 4 o'clock yesterday, Richard Hayward Taylor passed away, at Carbonear. Few men in Carbonear were better known. Sprung from a stock of successful fish-killers for fifty years or more he journeyed summer after summer to the Labrador Coast, where, with Cape Charles as his headquarters , he did business on the great deep, adding, both directly and indirectly, to the wealth and prosperity of his well loved land. It is now nearly 20 years since he withdrew from the active prosecution of the fisheries, but his later years have been full of other activities, notably in connection with the Methodist church , of which he was a leader, a trustee, a steward and an devoted member.

'Skipper Rich' as he was affectionately called by almost everyone who knew him, was one of a class fast dying outthat good old Planter class-which has for generations maintained the best traditions of the Colony for hospitality, fearlessness and endurance. He came from a race of vi-kings, and proved himself well worthy of the kinship.

His wife, like himself, attained to a green old age, passing away a few short years ago. Two daughters and five sons survive,Mrs. Alfred Penney, wife of Judge Penney, of Carbonear, Mrs. Pike, wife of Captain James Pike of Carbonear, formerly of the "Flora", Captain Hayward Taylor, of the Cordeelia, Mr. Hedley Taylor, of Ayre & Sons, Mr. Arthur Taylor, organist of the Carbonear Methodist church, and of Rorke & Sons' staff, and Mr. Ernest W. Taylor, the popular General Freight Agent of the Reid Nfld. Co's Railway. There are also a large number of grandchildren, nieces, nephews and other relatives, the only surviving sister being Mrs. Lavinia Pike, widow of Capt. Josiah Pike, of this city.

Mr. Taylor had reached the age of about 82, and has fallen before the scythe of Time as a shock of ripe corn before the blade of the harvester. His loved ones will miss him, his friends will miss him, his native town will miss him, but his Master's call came to him as no surprise, for in His service he had lived and died, and for him death had been robbed of it evary sting.

The funeral takes place tomorrow and will no doubt be largely attended by relatives and friends, in this city and elsewhere.

DEATH OF CAPTAIN RICHARD PIKE.

WE regret to hear of the demise of Captain Richard Pike, which sorrowful event took place about noon to-day.

Captain Pike had been engaged to resume charge of the steamer Hope for the sealfishery this spring; but, prior to the month of March, symptoms of a fatal internal disease rendered it necessary that he should abandon the arrangement.

Since that time the disease developed very rapidly, and for some weeks past it was known by his medical attendant that recovery was impossible. His peaceful end to-day was, therefore, not to his sorrowing family and relations an unexpected event.

The deceased was a member of an old and respected family of Harbor Grace, where he spent the greater part of his life.

As a sealing captain, he was most successful, and as an Arctic navigator his very great skill and kindly disposition endeared him to the hearts of those with whom he came in contact, and merited for him the highest respect and the most durable tokens of friendship and esteem.

The sad event will be regretted by a large circle of deceased's friends and relations, with whom we sympathize, and to whome we wish all needful consolation in the hour of their trial and grief.

Incidentally, page 4 of the Evening Telegram of Monday, 11 April 1892, contains a report of Captain Richard Pike's return from the icefields that spring.

Death of Capt. Joshua Pike,
One of Our Oldest Master-Mariners.

It is our sad duty to-day to record the death of Capt. Joshua Pike, whose demise took place at 6 30 this morning at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. R. W. Cramm, Theatre Hill, after a short illness of two weeks, during which time his suffering was very severe. His friends however, hoped that the worst would not happen, and yesterday the captain rallied somewhat. But last night a change took place, and it soon became evident that the end was drawing near. He began to sink rapidly, and at the time stated above,

All Was Over.
Capt. Pike was well-known and highly esteemed, having been engaged in the general carrying business of the country for a period covering 55 years. For 50 years he sailed out of the house of Munn & Co., Harbor Grace, eighteen years of which time he commanded, at intervals, the different steamers of that firm, and his services were always highly appreciated by his employers. Owing to the Bank crash of '94, he came to this city to reside, and sailed out of the employ of Goodfellow's for a period covering two years. Capt. Pike had been shipwrecked five times, and many were the narrow escapes he had from death by drowning. He leaves a wife, three daughters and one son, who is now in Lisbon Fall, U.S.A., to whom we extend our sincere sympathy.

On page 8 of the Evening Telegram, Tuesday, 22 Sept 1908:

W.J. PIKE
William John Pike, whose death occurred in the city this morning, was one of those men whom it is always a pleasure to meet. He will be missed especially in C. E. I. and S. O. E. circles. He was one of the sons of the late Simeon Pike who some of the older folk will remember was employed at Browning's bakery near the old Mill Bridge. He was of the same stock as the Pikes of Conception Bay, one of the oldest, if not the very oldest name to appear as that of a resident of this country.

William John Pike went to work with the Anglo-American Telegraph Company about half a century ago. Later he entered the employ of the Mutual Life Assurance Company and on the retirement of the late A. S. Rendell became manager and spent the greater part of the working days of his long life of 65 years in promoting life insurance.

Mr. Pike took an active part in Church and social work. He was for some years a member of the vestry of St. Mary's Church, Southside, at one time holding the office of Churchwarden. He was a lifelong member of the Sons of England Benefit Society and of the Church of England Institute, in which latter he was at the time of his death a member of the Board of Trustees.

He leaves to mourn besides his wife one son, Robert, employed at the Royal Canadian Armament Depot, Southside, and one daughter, Dorothy, now Mrs. C. E. Davis, residing at Toronto. His brothers still surviving are Mr. Arthur Quinton Pike at Bell Island, Rev. Herbert Leslie at Chelmsford, England, and Messrs. Gordon and Frederick of the Colonial Cordage Company of this city. His sister Ada, Mrs. James Chaffey, lives at Corner Brook. Another sister, Minnie, married to Mr. William Whelan, predeceased him.

The funeral will take place from his late residence, 140 Patrick Street, on Saturday next, at 2.30 p.m., and will proceed by motor hearse to the Church of England Cemetery.

To his many relatives and friends the Telegram extends sincere sympathy.

Tragic Drowning.
HEROIC ATTEMPT MADE TO SAVE HERBERT PIKE FROM WATERY GRAVE
A sad drowning accident occurred in the waters of Conception Bay near Chamberlain's Collars, yesterday afternoon, the victim being Mr. Herbert Pike, an employee of the Royal Stores Ltd. While swimming a long distance from the shore he either took a cramp or became suddenly chilled by the water and sank from view before a rescue party could reach him. The unfortunate victim was a member of the Royal Stores Swimming Club, whose members, including other employees of the firm, left the city by motor bus at 2.30 p.m. to spend the afternoon at Topsail. The part put up at Chamberlain's near the C.L.B. camping ground, and an enjoyable evenings reunion was being looked forward to by all. The Swimming Club, which has a membership of forty, including Pike, proceeded to the beach, while the remainder of the part engaged in some other form of amusement. The conditions for swimming were not ideal, as a heavy lop prevailed, while the wind was chilly. Pike, who was a very powerful swimmer, left his companions bathing near the shore, and started out to take a long distance swim, his object being centred on a boat anchored on the "Collar." His companions, who were rather amazed at his taking such a lengthy swim, warned him not to proceed too far, but the warning was unheeded; and he continued on. Pike's swimming abilities were watched with the closest attention by members of the Club and those from the shore. He reached the boat in the offing, and after swimming completely around it, started shorewards. Suddenly those on the beach heard him to say ah, ah, which everyone, more or less, understood to mean that he had accomplished what he had set out to do. Others, however, decided it was a cry for help. Pike was then about 100 yards from the shore, apparently resting on his back, but disappeared from view now and again. In the meantime, Mr. Harold Macpherson, President of the Club who, partly dressed, together with Messrs. Scott and Morgan, rushed for a boat that lay on the beach, and having launched her, set out to row hurriedly to the drowning man's assistance. The boat was dry from lying in the sun, rapidly filling with water, soon capsized, and all were thrown into the water. Mr. Macpherson with his boots on, very pluckily swam the remainder of the distance to the place where Pike was last seen, while the two other men held on to the upturned boat, ready to offer any assistance required. Unfortunately for all Mr. Macpherson's plucky effort proved futile. He returned to the upturned boat and held on with his companions until a boat, which put off from the shore, came to their rescue and got them safely to land. All three were very much exhausted after their long stay in the chilly water. No sign, however, could be seen of Pike. The accident occurred about 4.30. A motor boat was then procured, when two men named George and Lloyd Fowler, with jiggers and other appliances on board, went out and made a search for the body, which was recovered in about two and a half fathoms, about one hour later, some 90 yards from the shore. Artificial Respiration was applied by Miss Lydia Miller, ex-V.A.D., with the assistance of Messrs. Alex Feaver and Harold Rendell. Dr. Burden, who was staying at Manuels, was informed of the tragic happening and was quickly on the scene, but soon decided that life was extinct. After the sad tragedy had been made known, Mr. Harold Macpherson got in touch with Rev. E. C. Earp, who broke the sad news to the bereaved widow. The remains were taken in charge by Undertaker Carnell, and removed from Topsail to his mortuary rooms on Duckworth St., where the body was coffined, and later conveyed to his late residence, McDougall Street. The deceased was employed in the Shipping Department, Royal Stores Ltd., for the past five years, where he was always held in the highest esteem by all co-workers. He was an ex-member of the C.L.B., and an active member of the Old Comrades. He leaves to mourn a heart-broken widow and two children, the eldest being three and a half years old, to whom will go out the sympathy of the whole community.

Hr Grace Notes.

The sad news was flashed over the wires from Sydney on Saturday that James Pike, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Pike of Harvey Street, had been crushed to death at that place on the previous day. James Pike was a bright young fellow of only 18 years of age. He was a member of the K.E.B., and Secretary of the King Edward Branch of the C. B. B. S. It is only about three weeks since with his brother Alan and several other young men that he left here for Sydney. The awful news has cast a gloom over the whole town. The body arrived by train last night. We join with the whole community in offering our sympathy to the afflicted family.

Sudden Death of Mrs. L. H. Simmons
Mrs. Simmons, wife of Mr. L. H. Simmons, the well known mill-man of Whitbourne, died suddenly of heart failure at 63 Springdale Street last night. The deceased, who suffered from a slight complaint, only came to town recently and yesterday underwent a slight operation which to all appearance proved successful. But at eleven o'clock she took a sudden change and passed away shortly afterwards. The late Mrs. Simmons was well and favorably known by many in the city, who will learn with deep regret of her death. To the sorrowing relatives the Telegram offers it deep sympathy.

DIED
Of heart failure, on the 10th inst., Anne Pike, aged 55, dearly loved wife of Lemuel H. Simmons, of Whitbourne, leaving a husband and eight children, six daughters and two sons, who will mourn the loss of a good and loving wife and a kind and affectionate mother.
Another obituary appears on page 6 of the 18 Dec 1917 issue of the Telegram, apparently written by a correspondant at Colinet, who states that she "left here about two weeks ago for St. John's, apparently in good health" and that she leaves "two sons and seven daughters".

Hr. Grace Lady Dies Suddenly
Word has been received in the city of the sudden passing at Harbour Grace yesterday morning of Mrs. Z. Simmonds, mother of Mr. Ernest Simmonds, a well known business man of that city.

Obituary.
MRS. LEVI SIMMONS.

Early Tuesday morning, 10th inst., there entered into rest Zilpah, relict of the late Levi Simmons. She had been residing with her son, Mr. Ernest Simmons, and was enjoying good health all along, despite the fact that she had reached beyond the three score years and ten -- being in her 77th year. Shortly after tea hour on Monday last she complained of being ill, and when her condition did not change, later in the night Dr. Cron was called, who prescribed for her; and again at 5 a.m. the doctor was sent for a second time, but the end was very near, and came quite peacefully shortly after. Her passing, coming as it does so sudden and unexpectedly, is a great shock and surprise to her family and friends. Outside the family circle she will be missed, for, remembering the words of the Master, "Inasmuch as ye do it unto the least of these, my brethren, ye do it unto me," she was ever ready to cheer the sick and suffering and to extend a helping hand to the poor and needy.

The funeral took place yesterday (Thursday) afternoon and was attended by a large concourse of people. Service was held at the Methodist Church, the pastor, Rev. W. H. Browning, officiating; and "in sure and certain hope of the resurrection" her remains were laid to rest in the Methodist Cemetery.

Beside her son, Mr. E. Simmons -- one of our business men -- there are left to mourn two daughters -- Mrs. E. J. Cole of St. John's (who with her husband is now in town); Mrs. A. Pelley of Lisbon Falls; two brothers, Mr. Mark Pike of British Columbia and Mr. William Pike, and one sister, Mrs. Thomas Peddle, both of Bristol's Hope; also a large number of grandchildren and friends, to all of whom our sympathy is extended. -- Com.

William Pyke
There passed away yesterday at his residence, 117 Dresden Row, a man deservedly respected wherever known -- William Pyke, caretaker of Morris street school, where the news of his death was received by both the teachers and pupils with genuine regret.

It was, indeed, a very great surprise to them. Mr. Pyke had only been ill since Friday, when he developed pneumonia -- few knew that his condition was serious, and no one even suspected that the outcome would be fatal. Mr. Pyke was 62 years of age, and is survived by his wife and several children, all of whom are grown.

The funeral will take place at half past two o'clock on Wednesday, to St. John's cemetery.

W. Nelson Pike.
The family of William Nelson Pike have the deep sympathy of many friends in their sad and sudden bereavement. Mr. Pike, who was a staunch liberal-conservative, and deeply interested in the result of the general election, was one of those who took part in the reception to Mr. Borden on the evening of his arrival in Halifax, and his death is directly due to injuries received by the explosion of a torpedo torch which he was carrying, and by which his hand was literally torn in two and his face badly burned. Always a delicate man, he then sustained a shock from which he never recovered. Mr. Pike, who was only thirty-three years of age, was a native of Newfoundland, but came to Halifax eight years ago, and during his residence here had won the regard of all with whom he has been brought into contact. The dominant trait in his character was the very lovable one of generosity, and a readiness to serve his friends, which they all appreciated. At the time of his death he was in the employ of Moirs, Ltd., but was a book-binder by trade. He is survived by his wife and two little children, his father and mother and three sisters. His funeral will take place at half-past two o'clock on Sunday afternoon, from his late residence, 57 West street.

The Late Albert Pyke - As the last hour of the last day of February approached, the spirit of Albert Pyke went out to the God who gave it. His body was borne to its last resting place by four of his grandsons Sunday afternoon. They were evidently devoted to their grandfather and their work was a fitting tribute to his memory. The funeral service was conducted at the home of his son Judson where he was nursed through his protracted sickness, and where he passed away. The emblems of a fresh and sacred memory were present in the most exquisitely beautiful roses. They reminded those present of the beauty of God's thoughts toward his children. The services were conducted by the Rev Jabez Appleby. Mr Pyke was a man of simple and sincere piety. His unfeigned trust in his Savior made him to be a man of influence for good and an example of Christianity. He was a member of the Methodist Church, and was much appreciated and beloved by his pastor and fellow members. During the last week following Sunday, February 24th, he told the members of his family that he would not spend another another Sabbath with them; and its significance was borne out in the fact of his funeral taking place that Sabbath of which he had spoke. We say adieu to him for now with the prayer in our heart that others may emulate his face and piety. The sympathy of the town goes to those who mourn. He is survived by several children; namely Hedley N and Judson of Lunenburg; Willis in the United States; Mrs (Capt) E C Mack of Lunenburg; and Mrs Freeman Borgald of Halifax. -- Newfoundland and Boston papers please copy.

LEVI PIKE
1923-2013
It is with great sorrow that the family of Levi Pike, of St. Lawrence, NL, announces his sudden passing at the Burin Peninsula Health Care Centre on Friday, March 1st, 2013, at eighty-nine years of age.

Levi was first and foremost a loving and dedicated husband and father. He leaves to mourn, his wife of almost 68 years, Mildred Hillier Pike. Together Levi and Mildred raised, with unconditional love and devotion, 11 children. Left to mourn with Mildred are their children, of whom he was so very proud; Maxine (Rene) Fowler and Violet (Gerald) Fitzpatrick of St. Lawrence, NL, Diane (Brian) Campbell of Conception Bay South, NL, Marlene Pike (Robert Parizeau) of Kitchener ON, Connie Pike (Sean Roche) of Conception Bay South, NL, Donna (Steve) McCullough of Red Lake, ON, Deborah Pike of Halifax NS, Catherine (Cate) Pike of Dartmouth NS, Valerie Pike (Mark Lavin) of Saint John NB, and his only living son, Levi Pike Jr. of Conception Bay South, NL. Also mourning Levi's precious life; 21 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great grandchildren, all of whom he loved and adored. In sadness, his remaining siblings Freda, Margaret, Marion, Charles, Sandra, Vera, and Linda also mourn. Levi was predeceased by his first son Perry (1967), along with his parents, Charles James Pike and Emma Blanche Blagdon Pike, sisters Selina Ivy (Lucy), Berdina Elizabeth (Betty), Violet, Stella and brother John.

Levi was an avid and loyal listener of CBC radio, a passionate reader, an avid hiker, a consummate advocate for his community, and hero to many. He is remembered as a loving Christian, who was involved and respected in the Newfoundland political scene for many years, as he loved his majestic homeland. Levi's most precious legacy was his demonstrated commitment to his family. His message, gentle and adamant, has been and will remain one of love, hope, humor, knowledge, and commitment to each other. He will remain adored and respected by many, and his memory will always be cherished. A philosopher once said "humility + wonder = wisdom". That would be Levi.

A celebration and service for Levi's life, along with a Christian burial will take place at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday March 5th, 2013 at St. Matthew's Anglican Church in St. Lawrence NL. In lieu of flowers, donations will be gratefully accepted for St. Matthew's Anglican Church.

MILDRED CATHERINE PIKE
1925-2014
Mildred C. Pike, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother passed peacefully away on the evening of June 12th at the US Memorial Hospital in St. Lawrence, at the age of 88 years.

Mildred, affectionately called "Millie" to those that knew her, was a dedicated wife to Levi, and a devoted and loving mother to their 11 children- Maxine (Rene) Fowler, Vi (Gerald) Fitzpatrick, Diane (Brian) Campbell, Marlene (Robert Parizeau) Pike, Connie (Sean Roche) Pike, Levi Jr., Donna (Steve) McCullough, Debbie Pike, Cate Pike, and Valerie (Mark Lavin) Pike. Millie was predeceased by her dear husband Levi, of 68 years in 2013, and their son Perry in 1967. Millie was also predeceased by her parents Alice and Edgar, and her siblings Mabel, Stanley, Beatrice, Edith, Shirley, John Robert, Reginald, Douglas, and Verna. Also mourning Millie's passing are her 21 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren.

Millie personified the true meaning of family and motherhood. She had a great affinity for children and a kind and caring nature. She showed great pride in raising her children, being the ultimate "homemaker", and she travelled frequently to spend time with her loved ones. Second to that was her passion for the game of hockey. It was not unusual to have a houseful of family and friends on a Saturday evening to watch "Hockey Night in Canada". Millie also enjoyed playing cards, knitting, and hosting many special family dinners around her dining room table. She had a quick wit and loved to laugh and have fun. Millie always found time to help others and to support community fundraisers.

A celebration and service for Millie's life will take place at 2:00 pm on Monday, June 16th, 2014 at St. Matthew's Anglican Church in St. Lawrence, NL. In lieu of flowers, donations will be gratefully accepted for St. Matthew's Anglican Church, P.O. Box 396, St. Lawrence, NL AOE 2VO
