Theodore was born April 22, 1949, in St. Louis, Missouri to Helen Enochs and James Baytop Stubbs, M.D. The Stubbs family tradition in Galveston dates back to Theodore’s grandfather, Charles Joseph Stubbs, and although Theodore was born in St. Louis, Missouri, because his father was practicing medicine at St. Louis University at this time, he considered himself an adopted BOI of Galveston, where he lived the majority of this life.

He continued his education at the University of Texas graduating in 1973, and following in his father’s medical career, graduated in 1977 from UTMB. He remained at UTMB for his internship and residency requirements. He became a dedicated physician joining his father’s medical clinic before establishing his own internal medicine practice. Ted taught at the medical school and developed a specialty in pacemaker implantation. Ted was a member of various groups including the American Medical Association and Texas Heart Association. Ted was a licensed amateur radio operator – call sign KB5EAZ, an avid learner, and a Bob Dylan fanatic.

He is preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Catherine Louise Stubbs. He is survived by his daughters, Loretta Elizabeth Stubbs, Rebecca Elizabeth Stubbs and Elizabeth Grace Stubbs of Arlington, Texas, and son, Joshua Baytop Stubbs of Seattle, Washington; his brother, James B. Stubbs, Jr. and wife, Luisa, of Germantown, Tennessee; his nephew, Charles J. Stubbs and wife, Deborah and grand nieces, Caroline and Katie of Atlanta, Georgia; cousins, Charles Stubbs of Annapolis, Maryland, Lois and husband, Bill Blake of Highland Ranch, Colorado and Sally Stubbs of Houston, Texas.

I am so glad Ted and I reconnected in the last several months. I have such fun memories of our years growing up in Galveston. I am so glad he didn't lose his sense of humor! As others have mentioned he now has what he wished for all of us- peace and love!

Where there once was a daily message from Ted, there is silence. His last words are frozen on my computer from June 2, 2013. Ever so sad that we have lost his whit,his poetic narratives and news of his latest encounter or dream. Lately, a nomad of sorts, he found his way "home" among old friends and old dives. We are happy to have him home forever. Peace and Love, my friend.

Will be sadly missed. Rest in peace dear friend. You will be forever remembered with your big smile and big personality.

Charlie and I met Ted at OLPH Catholic Church through his beloved brother Jim and sister in law, Luisa. I realized very quickly Ted was witty, deeply caring, and still connected to his life in medicine. We were happy he reconnected with people in his life in Galveston. Just grateful that we met Ted and shared a few meals. God bless his soul. He will be missed.

Somedays word travels slow and we fail our friends by being to busy with ourselves. Ted, you will forever hold a special place in my soul. You were a good friend and like a brother. I miss you sailor. Fair seas and following winds. You are now at peace my brother.
