In Memoriam: Rep. Randy Pike
On behalf of our members, volunteers, staff, and Board of Directors, Missouri Right to Life would like to honor the memory of Representative Randy Pike (R-126), who passed away suddenly on September 20th.
Rep. Pike was elected to the Missouri House in 2012, and represented Vernon and Bates Counties. He has been remembered fondly as a charming sportsman as well as a champion taxidermist and woodcarver who served locally in many business, civic and community affairs.
Rep. Pike was a pro-life representative who knew the common-sense truth that Human Life must be protected and nurtured, and he voted that way. We deeply appreciate Rep. Randy Pike, and we remember his family and friends in their untimely loss.
