Justin Thien Pike

Justin Pike is and will always be remembered as a friend to everyone. We all love him and will forever cherish him in our hearts. 

At the end of the Vietnam war, Operation Babylift brought baby Justin to the United States to be adopted into the Pike family in Arizona. Justin then lived many lives that blessed numerous people across the world. 

Justin’s charisma and beautiful smile shone through as he worked as a street performer through his youth. He worked to perfect his stilt-walking, unicycle riding, juggling, tightrope walking, and even combinations of these skills. 

Throughout his life Justin crossed multiple state lines, living with many great people along the way. The final chapter of Justin’s storied life started when he moved to Nephi, Utah in the summer of 2018. 

The hearts of all those he came in contact with grew as he began bringing together a small town that rallied behind him with love and acceptance. He met many wonderful friends through working at the local market. 

Justin’s best attributes are what will keep him in our hearts forever. He never had much to say about himself; he only cared about the people around him. Many of his friendships started with a ride home from work or a short conversation on the bus. These conversations always left a lasting impression on the person that was lucky to be with him that day. 

The final chapter of Justin’s great life was enveloped in love for his family. He greatly enjoyed playing with his dogs, Colt and Bud. He spoiled and loved his nieces Kimber, Dakota, and Remi. 

Justin was poetically called home to his Father in Heaven on Valentine’s Day. May we all remember him and strive to be like him as we celebrate the day of love, the day of Justin. 

Our family would like to give a special thank you to all of our community members and CVMC staff and hospice. Justin received many acts of kindness and we are forever grateful for all of them.
