May 04, 2023

Hobart Chipman celebrating his 90th birthday. A carry-in meal in his honor was held April 29 at the Durham United Methodist Church in Durham with 53 guests coming from as far away as Leesburg, Virginia and Marina, California.  The event was hosted by his son, Glenn Chipman and step-daughters Barb Cook and Jeanie Sill.  Along with having lots of good food, there were picture collages to see and a beautiful birthday cake and ice cream was had by all to celebrate Hobart’s great life.  After the blessing, Hobart stood to give a wonderful speech, which he later admitted to practicing on for a few days in advance.  A good time was had by all, anticipating many more birthday celebrations in the years ahead. Hobart was born May 1, 1933.
