Comedian, Activist, Author, Dick Gregory Dies at 84

WASHINGTON, Aug. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Dick Gregory, 84, comedian, activist, author, lecturer and world famous teacher, died tonight surrounded by the members of his family, including his wife, Lillian. He was resting comfortably at the Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington D.C. after a week which started last Saturday when he was admitted interrupting a tour on the east coast near his home in D.C.

“He was the one of the sweetest, smartest, most loving people one could ever know,” his publicist of 50 years, Steve Jaffe, said tonight. “I just hope that God is ready for some outrageously funny times.”

The family has asked for privacy tonight but will have a full statement about arrangements for Gregory by tomorrow morning.
