He was born April 1, the 1926 was the second child of William Granville and Annie Truitt near Lamesa in Dawson County Texas.

His parents had 8 children.The oldest was sister Vocial, and the younger siblings are Sammy, Peggy, Sister (Charlesalene), Marita, Phillip, and Brother(Charles).

He was a World War II Veteran and served from 11 October 1944 to 22 November 1946 as a Chaplain in the Philippines and then in Japan.

After the war, in the middle of 1947, in Big Spring Texas, Dubbie saw Jackie Glaser from across the room and he said, “Some day, I am going to marry that girl.” And that he did.

Dubbie married Jacquelyn (Jackie) Glaser on December 15, 1947.

Dubbie started working for the Seaboard Company performing duties such as maintenance and grounds. Texaco bought the Seaboard Company and offered Dubbie the opportunity for him to be Roustabout, gas tester, warehouseman of oilfield supply and he retired after working more than 30 years.

Dubbie and Jackie brought 3 sons into this world.
Their first son is Dubbie D. and he has two sons William and James. This lineage brought Dubbie and Jackie a great grandson and a great grand daughter.

The second son Davey has 3 daughters Shana, Ashley and Lauren. This lineage brought Dubbie and Jackie 4 great grandsons and 5 great grand daughters and one that will be born in June of this year. Davey is married to Patricia, his wife of almost 20 years.

The third and last son Richey has two daughters named Terra and Tracie. Richey is married to Jenora, his wife of almost 21 years.

As a child, I remember that when anyone was hurt or injured, at some time during the band-aid process Dubbie would be heard saying, “ you know, I have had worse than this on my eye ball”. I was never 100% sure what he meant but I believe that it was his way of saying, Could be worse, or It will get better, or don’t let it get you down.

Through out his life one could see his choice of life style. He treated others with respect and value. This life style can be summed up in the phrase that he spoke at the end of every testimony, witness, spiritual discussion and may prayers, “For me and my house, we will serve the Lord”. I remember him saying so often, when there was a crisis, or heartache, “It works”. Finally after many years of hearing it I got the nerve to ask him ‘what works’. He replied, “the relationship with God through his Son Jesus. It is the only thing that comes close to working and it works. “ “God’s love works for who so ever”.

Dubbie was preceded in death by his beloved wife Jackie, and all his siblings except for Peggy and the youngest sibling Marita. Almost daily he would sit in the living room and listen to the LP records. So often could be heard the song, “This old world is not my home, I am just passing through”. Welcome home Dubbie. Welcome Home!
