Leonard Nimoy, 83, has died

Leonard Nimoy Dies at 83Leonard Nimoy has passed on due to complications from C.O.P.D.  He was 83.  While best known for his role a “Spock” on Star Trek, he also had a great five season run on “In Search Of…”, a show that explored the paranormal.  One of my personal favorite television shows when I was growing up, Mr. Nimoy narrated the show that presented evidence and explored the mysteries of UFOs, ghosts, the Loch Ness monster, and my favorite, Bigfoot.

Mr. Nimoy also was an accomplished director, having helmed some of the most popular Star Trek movies as well as wider-appeal movies such as “Three Men and a Baby”.

Growing up in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Mr. Nimoy was a local hero who also narrated the introduction to the Museum of Science’s Mugar OmniMax theater.  The delight of hearing Mr. Nimoy’s distinctive voice still resonates with me to this day.

Mr. Nimoy did live a long and prosperous life, and will be missed.
