R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015)

LEonard Nimoy

We here at Comics-X-Aminer are very saddened to report that Lenoard Nimoy has passed away at 83 years old. Mr. Nimoy was a talented photgrapher, director, and actor with notable roles in “Dragnet,” “Sea Hunt,” “Bonanza,” “Wagon Train,” “Rawhide,” “The Twilight Zone,” “The Untouchables,” “The Outer Limits,” “The Virginian,” “Get Smart”, and “Gunsmoke”. Of course, his most famous role was that of Mr. Spock on the classic Star Trek TV series which cemented Nimoy as a pop culture icon.
Nimoy directed several feature films, two of which were part of the Star Trek franchise Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home . However, the most notable movies he helmed were the 1987 comedy “3 Men and a Baby,” starring Tom Selleck, Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg, and the Diane Keaton-Liam Neeson drama “The Good Mother” (1988).

On February 23, 2015 Nimoy was rushed to hospital with severe chest pains and succumbed to the end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in peaceful comfort of his home today 02/27/15.

Nimoy was married twice, first to actress Sandra Zober. They divorced in 1987. In 1988, he married Susan Bay, an actress who is the cousin of helmer Michael Bay.

He is survived by his wife; two children from his first marriage, son Adam, a director, and daughter Julie; a stepson; and several grandchildren.

I think this video sums up everything in terms of how we feel.

Thank you Mr. Nimoy for the endless entertainment you’ve provided us over the decades.
