Richard “Dick” LeRoy Patchett was born on July 28, 1942 in Laramie, Wyoming to Garland LeRoy Patchett and Martha Raczykowski Patchett.

Richard attended Pocatello schools and then followed the footsteps of his father by also working for the Union Pacific Railroad. Dick was a brakeman.
Richard married Francy Marie Paul on December 24, 1976. They have enjoyed hunting, fishing and a lot traveling together. Richard also enjoyed building guns, composing and playing gospel music. Dick and Francy belonged to the Christian Motor Cycle Association and performed their music in the Prison Ministry for several years.
