A former White County prosecutor and Monticello attorney died March 1.

Lewis David "Dave" Dellinger Jr., 70, was elected White County prosecutor in 1966 and served for two terms. Dellinger received his law degree from Indiana University the same year he became prosecutor. He also practiced law in his family firm from 1966 until his retirement due to injuries in 2001. He was a former president of the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Association and member of the White County, Indiana, and American Bar associations. He was also admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States of America, and the Indiana Northern and Southern Federal Districts.

Before becoming an attorney, Dellinger served in the U.S. Army as a Signal Corps officer from 1959 through 1963. He was a lifelong Boy Scout and troop leader and member of many community organizations.

He loved to play golf and won the Tippecanoe County Club men's championship seven times.

Dellinger is survived by his wife, Nina Beth Dellinger; daughter, Andrea Dellinger-Winegardner; son Lewis Dowal Dellinger; sister Carmalieta Jenkins; and grandchildren.

A calling will be from 4 to 8 p.m. today at First Presbyterian Church, 104 N. Illinois St., Monticello, and one hour prior to the funeral Wednesday. Services will be at the church at 10 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Boy Scouts of America Sagamore Council or to the First Presbyterian Church, Monticello Building Fund.

  1. A sad end to a prolific gadfly. Indiana has suffered a great loss in the journalistic realm.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
