Dr. Carmine Anthony Nicastro Jr. peacefully departed this life after 78 years on the morning of November 4th, 2016, at home with his wife of 25 years, Marion Nicastro, by his side. His spirit is carried on by his first wife of 29 years Nancy Nicastro, brother Robert Nicastro, daughters Veronica Nicastro, Denise Kartzman, Flowers Lovern, and Monique Flores, and grand-children Lauren, Matthew, Joshua, Dominic, Sophie, Henry, Tristan, and Thalia, and by the thousands of patients who received his gift of healing. Carmine was born to his loving parents, Carmine Sr. and Vera Nicastro, on April 4th, 1938 in New York City, NY. After serving in the United States Army, he became an engineer for Corning Glass where he worked for nine years and developed three patents. Eventually, he became a Doctor of Chiropractic and began a journey to provide health and healing to his community, which lasted 57 years. Carmine’s ingenuity and excitement for life were also evident in his love of working on antique cars, hunting, fishing, traveling, and conservation.
As the founder of our practice , he will be dearly missed not only by all of us here at Corning Chiropractic Associates but by all of his patients as well. All that he taught us will be remembered and his legacy will continue on for future generations for the significant impact he had on the chiropractic profession.
