Dickey was a proud veteran of the United States Army and was honorably discharged in 1956.

He was a pipefitter by trade and a 54-year member of Local 106 that eventually became Local 198.  He was a die-hard fan of all Louisiana sports teams including the Saints, LSU Tigers and the Pelicans.  For many years he enjoyed coaching Little League Baseball and teaching life skills to the young men he coached.  His greatest passion was raising quarter horses and making the circuit of quarter horse racing across Louisiana.  In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing, hunting, gardening and spending time with his family.  He will be dearly missed but always remembered as a loving husband, father and grandfather.
