RIP Leonard Nimoy (1931 – 2015)


It is with great sadness that I have to announce that Mr. Spock, also known as Leonard Nimoy in this reality, has passed away this morning in his home in Bel Air, California, from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 83 years old. Apart from his acting career, Nimoy was also a poet, a director, a professional photographer, and at one point in his life, a soldier in the US army.

Here is his last tweet, which dates back to Monday the 23rd.

His granddaughter, Dani Nimoy, has made the following statement on a little earlier today:

Hi all, as you all know, my Grandpa passed away this morning at 8:40 from end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was an extraordinary man, husband, grandfather, brother, actor, author-the list goes on- and friend. Thank you for the warm condolences. May you all LLAP. – Dani

Rest in peace Mr. Spock, you will never be forgotten.
