Richard A. Schecklman was born on Nov. 21, 1955, in Neillsville, to Anthony and Anita (nee Genskow) Schecklman. He attended high school in Loyal and graduated from Loyal High School.

He was a former member of the First Presbyterian Church, Abbotsford, a former Loyal FFA member, and a former member of both the Abbotsford Jaycees and the Abbotsford Lions Club.
