Leonard Nimoy b. March 26, 1931 d. February 27, 2015
It is will a heavy heart that we have heard of the passing of one of Science Fiction’s greatest icons. Leonard Nimoy, best known for playing the Vulcan Science and 1st Officer of The Starship U.S.S. Enterprise, on Star Trek: The Original series and numerous movies and television appearances and shows, has passed away at the age of 84 in Los Angeles, California of complications of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Best known for his acting, Nimoy was also a presence behind the camera directing many movies including Star Trek III and IV, as well as Three Men and A Baby. He was also a noted photographer and author, writing 2 biographies, I am Spock and I am Not Spock, both written from the viewpoint of sharing his existence with the character he made famous on television.
In my opinion he took to his character’s saying of “Live long, and prosper” with great zeal and did just that. His list of works speaks for itself. I wish to pass along our condolences to his family and dear friends, as well as the millions of fans who mourn his passing.
He leaves behind his wife Susan and child Adam.
