Leonard Nimoy dies

Mr. Spock is no more. Leonard Nimoy, who was a true TV icon, died from complications of COPD, an umbrella term for lung disease. Mr. Nimoy stated last year that he suffered from this disease. He indicated that it was caused by smoking. He had given up smoking 30 years ago and he wanted his followers to also quit smoking.

Mr. Nimoy was best known as Mr. Spock from ‘Star Trek’. But the career of Mr. Nimoy began as early as the 1950s. He played in ‘Sea Hunt’, ‘Wagon Train’, ‘Gunsmoke’, ‘Mission: Impossible’, ‘Invasion America’ and ‘Fringe’. His last performance was in the ‘Star Trek’ movie Into Darkness from 2013. But he was regularly found behind the camera as a director and he was also a regular on stage. Mr. Nimoy was not only an actor but also a writer of two autobiographies, photographic books, and numerous volumes of poetry.

Nimoy’s last tweet was posted on February 23rd and seemed to indicate that he knew his time was near. He wrote, “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP” (Live Long and Prosper).

In addition to his wife Susan Bay, Mr. Nimoy is survived by his children Adam and Julie, a stepson Aaron Bay Schuck, six grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and an older brother Melvin.
Leonard Nimoy died at his home in Bel Air, Los Angeles at the age of 83.

Farewell Mr Spock.
