Terry Lee Dubberly

Captain Terry Lee Dubberly, United States Air Force Retired, passed away on Monday, October 19th, after a lengthy fight against cancer. At 12:13 p.m. Terry won his battle, holding his wife’s hand. Terry was born February 1st, 1948, in Hastings, Nebraska, to Lois Jean (Mays) and Julian (Jack) Dubberly. Terry grew up following his father’s military career around the world, living across the United States and overseas before graduating from Doniphan (NE) High School in 1966. He and Judy first made their home in Norman, Oklahoma, where he continued his life of service--first with the Oklahoma Lupus Association, then with Vatterott College, and finally as Executive Director of Opportunities, Inc. in Watonga, Oklahoma. Terry saw the move to Watonga in 2009 as the start of a new adventure, and loved the slower pace of life. He finally officially retired in August 2015, when cancer made it necessary. Terry is preceded in death by an infant daughter, his parents Lois Jean and Jack, his brother David Dubberly, and his brother- in-law. He is survived by his wife of 46 years, Judy, daughter Andrea (Brent) Williams, son Jesse (Sarah) Dubberly, along with 4 beautiful granddaughters, sisters Gloria (Jeff) Gates, Brenda Astrones, Colleen (Mike) Leitschuck, and numerous nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Russell- Murray Hospice, Opportunities Inc., or the Watonga Fire Angels.
