May you rest in peace, Dennis Weaver.

....A vegetarian for most of his adult life, Weaver became an activist for protecting the environment and combating world hunger. He served as president of Love Is Feeding Everyone (LIFE), which fed 150,000 needy people a week in Los Angeles County. He founded the Institute of Ecolonomics, which sought solutions to economic and environmental problems. He spoke at the United Nations, U.S. Congress, to college students and school children about fighting pollution and starvation....

A true activist and a fascinating actor. My favorite work of his was the TV movie "Duel".
