Richard "Dickie" Hyatt was the only child of Eddie Lois Houck and Jennings W. Hyatt.

As a boy, Dickie loved to build model airplanes. He had them hanging all over his room. He loved animals and often played with his Aunt Mabel's beagles. When he was eight years old, his father Jennings died as the result of a furniture factory accident. His mother eventually remarried and he had a stepfather, Sam Depew.

Dickie graduated from Morganton High School in 1949 and worked at Spake Pharmacy. In 1950 he enlisted in the Air Force and received his basic training at Lackland AF Base in Texas. He was transferred from there to Offutt Field where he was a motor pool dispatcher until he developed cancer. Weakened by the spread of the cancer, Dickie ultimately died of pneumonia. Surviving were his mother, stepfather, and half-brother Sammie. He was 22 years old.

The Rev. Emmett McLarty led the funeral service. A firing squad from Donaldson Air Force Base in Greenville, S.C. assisted with the graveside service.

Pallbearers were Max Jaquins, Macon Alexander, Johnny Branch, Jimmy McFadden, Preston Whisnant, Bob Roseman, Richard Kincaid, and Tommy Walton.
