Aww, sorry to see him pass although 83 is a long life.

He was my Star Trek crush when I was a kid. I even had one of his albums, I think it was this one -
Two Sides of Leonard Nimoy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

At least he lived long. I hope he prospered - it seemed so.

Anyone willing to repeatedly share the screen with noted scenery chewers has to be a patient, kind person. Will miss his talent.

Yes sad to see Nimoy go. I liked his portrayal of Spock....see my signature.....and that probably influenced me to work the sciences, but don't forget his performances on Mission Impossible and other great 60's and 70's TV shows.

A very well-liked man, AFAIK. We'll all miss him.

I just got done reading the news about his passing before I logged on here.

The character of Mr Spock is the very reason I decided to go into science, computers, and later engineering. I was born in 1958, just after the beginning of the Space Age (Sputnik).

Everything was all about the space race and exploring the extra-terrestrial domain.

Wikipedia has a wonderful writeup about his vast body of w*rk besides Star Trek.

He was quite the person, a major influence on a lot of us who decided to go into the STEM fields. BRAVO, Mr Nimoy.

And yes, I had a major crush on him as a teenager.

He was worth $45 million so i'd say he prospered financially.

Classy to the end. His final tweet was "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP"


LLAP = Live Long and Prosper, btw.

I wasn't thinking in financial terms. I was hoping he was prospered in terms of happiness, joy and good relationships.
