Pike was born in Castroville, Texas, in July 1940. After graduating from high school in Weslaco, Texas, Pike attended the University of Texas Pan American College. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1961 and was honorably discharged in 1965. A management path with Howard Johnson’s transferred him from Dallas to Denver in 1969 and opened his future in the restaurant and foodservice sector. From restaurant management and ownership, Pike moved into restaurant and foodservice equipment sales and then transitioned to a manufacturers’ representative partnership, Johnson Pike & Associates, that covered the Rocky Mountain region from Montana south to Arizona, New Mexico and west Texas. He retired from the firm in Denver, after 25 years.
