Charles Dwain Ingram

April 10, 1936 – January 8, 2019
Charles Dwain Ingram, D.C., April 10, 1936 (Vanderhoof) to Jan 8, 2019 (Nanaimo). Dwain loved his family, his career and relaxing on the water. He was generous with his time, patience, and skills. As a passionate Chiropractor he dedicated much of his life to healing others, and honing his techniques to advance upper cervical Chiropractic care. The fall 2018 NUCCA Conference was held in his honor, he was celebrated as an innovator and clinician extraordinaire. Few things gave him more pleasure than providing a patient with a perfect alignment.

He also loved to garden, learn, invent things, trade stocks, fish, exchange jokes, and celebrate with loved ones. Dwain’s Catholic faith was a huge source of comfort and wonder. He had a powerful intellect, insatiable curiosity, and incredible compassion. He was known for his great sense of humor and appreciation of the absurd.

He is survived by Maureen, his wife of 53 years, his sister Joan Smythe (Jim Smythe), his children Mike (Isabell Ingram) and Donna (Mike Sanders) and his grandsons Zach and Jacob Sanders.

Thank you to the Knights of Columbus, the St. Peter’s prayer group, and everyone who took the time to be with him during his illness. Special thanks to Dr. Shawn Thomas and the staff of Long Lake Chiropractic for the tribute to him in the fall. Thank you for the support of the staff at Nanaimo Seniors Village, NRGH, and Trillium Lodge in Parksville. We will all miss him.

A Funeral Mass followed by a reception will be held at 11 am on Thursday, January 31st at St. Peter’s Church, 301 Machleary St., Nanaimo.
