Retired Archdeacon, now deceased
St. Christopher's, Burlington
Ian MacLeod Dingwall was born in August of 1934 in Inverness Scotland where he grew up for his first 14 years. He emigrated to Canada where he completed high school. He attended UBC where he achieved a BA in 1960. He graduated from Anglican Theological College in 1961 (L.Th.) and Vancouver School of Theology in 1968 (S.T.B.). He was ordained Deacon in 1961 and Priest on Ascension Day 1962 in New Westminster Diocese.
In 1972 Ian came to Niagara as rector of St. Jude's until 1987. From 1987 until 1992 he was appointed Executive Archdeacon of Niagara and Executive Officer. He then went to St. Mark's in Niagara on the Lake as rector from 1992 until 1997. He was appointed for a second term as executive Arch Deacon from 1997 until 2000. Ian retired on January 30th 2000.
He celebrated his family life with his wonderful wife Dorothy, and with children Stephen, Brenda and Christine. He is the proud grandfather of Michael, Taylor and Katie Clarke as well as Noah Matthew Pollard.
During the month of January 2010, Ian gave up his earthly life and moved to a life eternal. He had battled long and hard with cancer. Throughout his battle, Ian chose to continue to turn outward and give to the community though his on-going writing and prayer. Ian walks with the Lord and for this we are thankful.
