R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy
By Dr. Know on February 27th, 2015
It’s a sad day in fandom today, folks. On the off-chance you haven’t already heard Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy, has died. He was 83.
Nimoy died early Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles.
His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
I could sit here and try to wax philosophical about his legacy, but quite frankly there’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said about this legend (and by far better people for that matter).
Best to read some of the tweets below. The funeral scene in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan seems more poignant than ever right now.
Rest in peace, Mr. Nimoy, you are legend.
