He enjoyed operating heavy equipment in construction and was a hard worker, always providing for his family. Dickie also started out coaching when his children were young. He began as a tee ball coach, coached soccer, and then coached girls softball for many years.
Dickie attended Bible College and later went to auctioneer school to follow his passion with collectibles. He also enjoyed fishing trips, traveling, and spending precious time with his grandchildren.
He was a member of Bible Baptist Church where he served in the nursing home ministry.
