During his tenure in Sand Springs, he coached football, basketball, and baseball. His 1937 football team went undefeated. The field house at Charles Page High School was named in his honor.

Following his career with Sand Springs Public Schools, he headed the tax and insurance departments for the Sand Springs Home Interests and became a partner at the Dubie-Wells insurance agency. He also served as the head of the Tulsa Chapter of the American Cancer Society.

Dubie passed in 1992 at the age of 84. His wife, Marjorie, joined him in 1998 at the age of 85.
