He and his siblings went to live at The Thornwell Home for Children in Clinton, South Carolina, when he was nine years old. Dr. DuBose went on to graduate from Thornwell High School and entered Davidson College in North Carolina. After one year at Davidson, he enlisted in the US Navy where he served for three years on the USS Goodrich in communications. He then returned to Davidson College and graduated with the Class of 1951. Dr. DuBose earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in 1955.

Dr. DuBose practiced medicine briefly in Camden, South Carolina, before coming to Blacksburg in 1957. This was where he met Miss Betty Lou Neal, whom he married on April 15, 1961.
