Junior was born March 19, 1936 in Wisconsin Dells the son of Laurence and Florence (Stroede) Dickman. In March of 1954 he married Anna Waltman. Junior worked most of his life as a painter, being a member of Painters Union Local 802 and contracted primarily in the Madison area. For 15 years he was employed at University of Wisconsin Madison where he retired from. He was a member of the Kilbourn Volunteer Fire Department from 1968 to 1986. Junior was an avid outdoors person and loved hunting deer and turkey, fishing both out of a boat or on the ice, and he was a proud owner of property down by the Wisconsin River he referred to as the “40”. He also enjoyed using his tractor to work in his immense garden which he tended with his wife. Most of the produce was eventually given to his many friends around the area which in itself was rewarding to him. Over the years his best pals have been Chesapeake retriever dogs which he always named Chester.
