The 1 meter 60 cm tall Delmare become famous primarily for his roles in more than 200 films. In his 50-year career he played roles like Pippig in Naked Among Wolves, the tire dealer Saft in The Legend of Paul and Paula and Enno Kluge in Every Man Dies Alone. With these roles Delmare became one of the most popular film actors in the GDR. In the 1990s he appeared increasingly in TV series, including in Lindenstraße, in Unser Charly and as Friedrich Steinbach in In aller Freundschaft. His actor career ended in November 2005 with a day of shooting for the series In aller Freundschaft. This last episode with Delmare as Grandpa Friedrich was broadcast on 31 January 2006.

The actor was overtaken by several strokes of fate. His daughter Felicitas took her life 1980 after fleeing to West Germany. 1993 - in the birthday night of his father - his son Nici stabs his girlfriend to death. The oldest son Tino died 2001 with 41 years of hepatic cancer.

The day after his 87th birthday Delmare was taken to a Leipzig hospital. A few days later he died from the consequences of double pneumonia. His urn was buried in Leipzig on 27 May 2009 with many former colleagues on the South Cemetery attending.
