Tim (Thomas Edwin) Hubbard, 77, formerly of Pittsboro passed away peacefully on August 26, 2021 at Durham Regional Hospital. Tim was born in Roseboro, NC on July 10, 1944 to the late Mercer Reeves Hubbard and Charles Hubbard. He was a resident of Raleigh, NC at the time of his death and is survived by his siblings Martha, Charles, and John; two daughters, Eliza and Caitlin; and grandson, George.
Tim graduated from Chapel Hill High school in 1962 and attended Emory University for 1 year before enlisting in the US Marine Corps from 1963-1968. Tim graduated from Duke University in 1970 with a BSE in biomedical engineering and from UNC School of Law in 1973 with a Juris Doctor. Tim moved to Pittsboro in 1979 to be closer to his family and founded Chathamborough Research Group, which operated from 1979-1998 helping medical device companies navigate the FDA approval process.
Tim was always an adventurous spirit who loved new experiences. At age 18, he sailed a 25 foot sailboat to the Bahamas to live for a year, and after graduating from law school he backpacked to over 30 countries in Europe for a year. He was also a soccer coach and administrator for several leagues in the Triangle area for over 20 years, including middle school coach at Horton Middle from 2000-2003.
In Fall of 2012, Tim was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, which temporarily paralyzed him from the neck down until he was able to recover again to the point of walking without an assistive device. Following his positive experience with all the medical professionals that helped him recover, Tim became interested in nursing and received his CNA license in 2015.
A memorial service is planned for Saturday, September 25th at 10:00 a.m. at Pittsboro United Methodist Church.
