Danielson – Dr. Edmond E. Morin, 77, resident of Danielson and beloved husband of Barbara A. Morin, passed away peacefully on November 1, 2020 surrounded by his loving family. Edmond was born on April 26, 1943 in Putnam CT, son of the late Edmond and Anita Morin. He was a graduate of Marianapolis Preparatory School (1961), then attended Boston University where he studied biology before earning his Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine at New York Chiropractic College in Manhattan. Ed returned to CT shortly thereafter and established his first chiropractic practice in Putnam in his early 20s before setting up permanent practice in Dayville. He was certified in orthopedics and provided compassionate care to his patients for over 35 years. He also served as Secretary of the Connecticut Chapter of the National Chiropractic Association for several years before retiring to spend time with his wife and family.
Ed loved to travel and had many hobbies. He was a collector of penny arcade trading cards and vintage coin-operated penny arcade machines. Ed was also a lifelong student of history and in his retirement was an active participant in the Learning in Retirement program at Quinebaug Valley Community College where he gave legendary lectures on a wide variety of topics including the Oregon Trail, Hobo Life in America, and the Early Years of Motion Pictures. Family was always the most important part of his life. He enjoyed completing crossword puzzles and having intense games of Scrabble with his wife Barbara and spending time with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He instilled in us the importance of education, he was always supportive, and provided us with valuable guidance throughout our lives. He will be cherished and will remain a part of us forever.
