Dubbie Loice Truitt, age 92 of Breckenridge passed away Monday, March 11, 2019, in Coleman, Texas. Graveside services will be Friday, March 15, 2019, at the Breckenridge Cemetery at noon. The family will welcome friends at the funeral home one hour prior to the service. Arrangements are entrusted to Melton-Kitchens Funeral Home.

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

His parents had eight 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 October 11, 1944, to November 22, 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 a Roustabout, gas tester, warehouseman of oilfield supply, and he retired after working more than 30 years.

Dubbie and Jackie brought three 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-granddaughter.

The second son Davey has three daughters, Shana, Ashley and Lauren. This lineage brought Dubbie and Jackie four great-grandsons and five great-granddaughters and one who 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 percent 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.”

Throughout his life, one could see his choice of lifestyle. He treated others with respect and value. This lifestyle can be summed up in the phrase that he spoke at the end of every testimony, witness, spiritual discussion and many 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 whosoever.”

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!
