Rick was born in the old Cardston Hospital on June 29, 1946, and spent his early years in Beazer, Alberta. He was the second youngest of six children, and loved to go horseback riding with his brothers. He would ride his horse Trigger to school in Beazer with his sister Cavell and his brother Gordon, until he moved to Cardston in the fourth grade. After high school, he attended the Lethbridge Junior College and then began his apprenticeship in welding. He spent many years working for Chinook Pipelines and travelling all over Alberta.
