We Lost Leonard Nimoy (1931 – 2015)

After a year long battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, legendary actor Leonard Nimoy died this morning at his home in Los Angeles, according to The New York Times. For decades, he breathed life into an iconic character who’s just as much a joy to watch now as he was when my dad would rush home and immediately flip on the original Trek with his workcoat still on. I’m literally at a loss for words because every sentence I try to write just comes out “Me nerd, love Spock.” He was just the best.

Rest in Peace, you pointed-eared hobgoblin.
