Dave Dellinger died in 2004 "at a nursing home in Montpelier, Vt. According to friends, he had suffered from Alzheimer’s disease.

"Dellinger lost track of the number of times he was arrested or jailed over the years for protests, including demonstrations against the Vietnam War.

"Through the decades, Dellinger was a stalwart in nonviolent protest beside the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Daniel Berrigan, Daniel Ellsberg and other leaders on the left. But he probably is best known for being one of those on trial in Chicago after the 1968 Democratic Convention.

"Dellinger was in his mid-50s at the time—the “old man” of the group of radicals who faced prison after the anti-war protests during the convention." [1]
