James DuBose
Mar 16, 1924 to Nov 18, 2015


Elder James Henry “Tim” DuBose, 91, transitioned from this earthly life on Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at Tuomey Health Care System, Sumter. Born in Oswego (Sumter County), on March 16, 1924, he was the fifth of eight children of the late Frank and Estelle Dubose. A lifelong Presbyterian, Tim not only talked the talk, but walked the walk of his Christian faith and his light shined everywhere he went. He joined and served in Bethlehem Second United Presbyterian Church his entire adult life. He continued that service with the same church which survive a relocation from Oswego to Sumter and a name change to New Covenant Presbyterian Church. Even though Tim’s formal education ended in the seventh grade, his thirst of knowledge was never quenched. His sharp mind afforded him the opportunity to serve as civil engineer and demolition expert in the United States Army while serving in France during World War II. He served from 1943 to 1945. After completing his military service he returned to the United States to marry the love of his life, Ida Mae Richardson, in 1947, a union that lasted for 49 years until “Daily” as his loving wife was known, preceded him in death in April 1996. Tim was very active in his children’s lives and the community serving as President of the Moore Elementary School PTA. He was also a lifelong member of the NAACP. Tim worked for B. L. Montague for 30 years before he courageously made the decision to improve his family’s quality of life by taking a position with Westinghouse, where he worked for 10 years before retiring. Tim leaves to cherish his memories: his four children, James Edward “Jimmy” (Sally) DuBose and Harry Dubose, both of Sumter, Ted (Stephanie) Dubose of Charlotte, NC, Sharon DuBose of Columbia; five grandchildren; three great grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Funeral services will be held 3:00 p. m., Monday, November 23, 2015 from the New Covenant Presbyterian Church (USA), 907 Legare Street, Sumter, with the Rev. Dr. Gloria Williams, Moderator, Elder Joyce McGee, Clerk of Session. The family is receiving friends at the family home, 321 Pinson Street, Sumter. The Remains will be placed in the church at 2:00 p. m. The procession will leave from the home at 2:30 p m. Floral bearers will be cousins and Presbyterian Women. Casket bearers will be Presbyterian Men. Burial will be in the Hillside Memorial Park, 3001 Cain’s Mill Road, Sumter.
