He was born on March 27, 1937 in Washington, GA to Marion and Lucylle DuBose. He was a devoted husband to Rosetta Dubose for 59 years. To this union two children were born (Deena and Terrence).



He was employed for the United States Postal Service (USPS). After 36 years of service with the USPS, he retired as Postmaster of Janesville, WI.



Following retirement, he moved to Hot Springs Village from Maywood, IL. He resided in “The Village” for 23 years, and was known for his great sense of humor, quick wit and kind loving spirit.



His hobbies included an interest in model train railroading and an annual holiday tree display.



He was very involved in community services. This extended to several organizations including:

  • Optimist International – Through his membership with Optimist International he served in District and local positions.




  • Jackson House – His concern for the less fortunate extended to his service on the Jackson House Board, an interfaith community crisis center.




  • National Association of Retired Federal Employees (NARFE) – He advocated for both active and federal employees on pay issues, and health as well as retirement benefits.




  • Cedar Mountain Singers – His involvement with the Cedar Mountain Singers included performance at several concerts a year.




  • Village of United Methodist Church – Religion was very important to him as evidenced in his active involvement in the mission of the church.




  • Hot Springs Concert Association – As a member of this non-profit organization he worked as a volunteer in numerous concerts.





He was preceded in death by his parents, Marion and Lucylle DuBose. He leaves to cherish his memory: wife (Rosetta), daughter (Deena), son (Terrence), and two grandchildren (Terrence Jr. and Sharea Johnston).
