Gregory “Greg” S. Pike, 73, passed away Jan. 26, 2022 at his home in Vero Beach, FL, surrounded by his loving family.

Andrew Pike and Natalie Pike; 5 brothers-in-law, a sister-in-law, their spouses and families, all of whom adored Greg.  Born to Katherine (nee Stevens) and Albert R. Pike, he grew up in Mentor, Ohio, graduated from Mentor High, Ashland College, and Rutgers’ Stonier School of Banking.  A true gentleman with a wonderful sense of humor, Greg had many interests that included golfing, skeet shooting, photography, gardening, travel, art, music, cooking, being at his Florida beach home, and especially spending time with family and his many friends. He will be remembered as a man of great warmth and character, an optimist who embraced life with determination, fascination, courage, and humor. Greg began his banking career at National City Bank, where he rose to Head of Private Banking, then went on to executive positions at Fifth Third Bank, First County Bank (President), and hedge fund Corsair Partners (NYC). He was a member of the Vero Beach Yacht Club and former member and board member of the Kirtland Country Club. Giving back was important to Greg and he served on several business and university boards, as well as South Russell Village Parks Committee and his OH and FL Homeowners’ Associations.    Friends received at the ST.
