Leonard Nimoy, the Beloved “Mr. Spock” in Star Trek, Dies at 83.

Leonard Nimoy, the iconic and beloved actor who gained a worldwide following for his portrayal of the ever-logical and resolute Mr. Spock on Star Trek, passed away on Friday in his home in Los Angeles. Nimoy was 83.

He is survived by his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, who confirmed his death was caused by end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nimoy had been fighting this disease after years of smoking, despite having given up the habit three decades ago.

Condolences have begun to pour in from around the world, as a saddened fanbase recalled, somewhat ironically, the humanity that Nimoy brought to the half-Vulcan he played. Besides acting, Nimoy鈥檚 pursuits included photography, poetry and music, but he will always be remembered for the iconic character of Mr. Spock, a pointy-eared Second Officer with an unmistakable hand signal, a formidable Vulcan nerve pinch, and even his own catch phrase: 鈥淟ive long and prosper鈥濃攁 motto Nimoy himself embodied.

      That was a heartbreaking line then and now.

      Of all the shows, of all the movies, that line always made me tear up, I can’t help but wonder when William Shatner said that line, if it was rehearsed that way or was he really over whelmed by the moment

      • Christopher Michael Moore

        It should be on his tombstone, or at least in the eulogy. Nothing but great respect for him.

      • Kathryn Hildebrandt

        Probably was really overwhelmed – given his acting skills…

        I’m so broken hearted, there are just no words that I can approiately think of at this time. The heavens have surely gained another star at this time. They always made us want to look forward to our next adventure into the stars, as well as to travel with them wherever they were to go. Even though as Mr. Spock would say “ilogical, totally illogical. “

    Rest in Peace.

      Thank you so much Linda Tock, that pretty much sums it up……..

      • Kathleen Bullock Williams

        ron you say iit for every one of us who grew up and wached him he was a good person to have so many people love him as himself and charactor he made a big big empression on so many people .but lennard did not die at 83yrs ,…..he lived 83 years..

  • Jo Birdsall Cupp Campbell

    Although I had never seen or met him in person, I feel like I lost a very good friend. I doubt when Star Trek first started, that any of us could have predicted that the actors/actresses would become legends in our hearts and minds. This simple TV show, touted once as “‘Wagon Train’ to the stars,” showed us glimpses of our country’s possible future, with races/countries/nations/even space aliens, learning to live together, mostly in peace. Awesome!

    • Cat Morse

      That’s exactly how I feel. Though I never got to meet him, he was a friend, who was there in all life’s struggles, who stood for something good.

    • Bill

      This is exactly how I feel this morning… like I have lost a dear family member. Mr Spock has been a part of my life for 48 years, and was a very influential factor in my outlook. While many may say that he was just an actor playing a role, he was family to me. Rest In Peace! #LLAP #Spock

    • Jeff

      I too felt like I knew him even though we have never met

    • eddie

      simple TV show?!!!!?!!

      I love this very well said…..you will be missed Leonard Nimoy…..May every man, woman and child learn what we have learned from the writers of star trek. Many b blessings to the family and may he find his way to his forever homeland.

    When I was about 8 years old my dad sold him a new car, and he got me on the phone with him. He “played” being Spock, and I got one of the big thrills of my youth. He also gave my dad an autographed picture, signed to me. I was an early trekkie, and feel the loss. Live long and prosper!

  • Ben Swonger

    guess hes at the “and prosper” part. He has sooo many fans sad today :(. Including me.

  • So sad to see him go.

  • I literally cried when I first heard of his death this morning. I grew up with Star Trek as my one “much watch” show when I was a kid. I followed Mr Nimoy’s life, read his books, admired his art. He was a kind soul, a good soul, which shall be loved and missed for many years to come. This is one person who will truly never be forgotten.

    May God bring his family peace. May God welcome him home to Heaven and allow him to live among the stars that he so loved.

    I’ve loved him since childhood. I own his lovely books of poetry, was empowered by his photo project showing the true feminine beauty of women no matter what their size, and am so grateful for all of his contributions to the arts and the human cause. Part of me expected this soulful “Vulcan” to outlive us all

    • Because I have known despair
      I value hope

      BecauseI have tasted frustration
      I value fulfillment

      BecauseI have been lonely
      I value love

  • Daniel C Swanson

    I can remember sitting in front of my TV watching the first Star Trek show, and wanting to be Mr. Spock. That show and Mr Spock got me interested in space. He will be missed, it is sad when a person like he, is gone. He really did live long and prospered all of our lives.

  • John Pittenger

    You are my superior officer. You are also my friend. I have been and always shall be yours.

  • Sean Cowan

    I think Spock would put it like this “It is illogical to be angry at a death, but foolish not to recognize a person’s accomplishments”. RIP Mr. Nimoy

  • Robert Kegel

    Leonard Nimoy played one of the best, most iconic characters on TV and in movies in a show that we as humans can only emulate. A show that showed the world can be a better place. Leonard Nimoy will never be forgotten. Live long and prosper!

    He’s been a part of my life since I was a child having endured the Star Trek watching habits of my dad. Little did I know then that Mr. Spock would be a lifelong favorite and that one day I would feel like I lost a family member at his passing. My prayers to his family and fans. He leaves behind an amazing legacy for all of us.
    Godspeed, Mr. Nimoy. We’ll see you on the other side.

    Rest in peace, sir.

    I had a chance to speak with him once. He was quiet and well spoken. Mr. Nimoy was a pleasure to speak with. We spoke of his COPD and my Asthma and photography and even Star Trek. We even spoke of cigarettes. I wish we could of conversed again.

    Mr. Nimoy spoke Yiddish, English, French, and spoke Ukrainian when he was young. Talented man. He will be missed.

    “We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted, in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… [voice breaks] human.”- Captain James T. Kirk

    “He’s not really dead as long as we remember him.” -Bones

    You are truly one of the ones that will never be forgotten. Thank you for your part in inspiring so many to look to the stars.

    GodSpeed, Mr. Spock.

    of all the souls I have encountered His is the best

  • Cameo R. burns

    From the time I was born ’til now, my 44rth year of life, Spock has been present. He was just . . . always there. Now he’s gone! They say you never know how much someone means to you until they’re gone! I had no idea I cared so much for some silly character on some silly show! I never realized just how much Leonard Nimoy was a part of me, us, the world. His passing leaves a pretty big dent in the lives of even those who weren’t honestly Trekkies! Which just goes to prove just how talented, gifted, skilled Mr. Nimoy really was!!!!!!!!

    While I am definitely a “trekkie,” and have always loved his portrayal of Mr. Spock, I think we should also recognize his work as Director, especially for “Three Men and a Baby.”

    We from the science fiction nerd community the world over are
    profoundly saddened to learn of the passing of one of science fiction’s
    best known icons, whose face has been recognisable for generations as
    well as a part of all our childhoods for 50 years, legendary actor
    Leonard Nimoy, who is most well known as the character of the Vulcan
    called Spock from the series Star Trek, a role that has launched him
    into global super-stardom and legend within the sci-fi realm.

    Nimoy was
    hospitalised sometime last Thursday citing cardiac-related health
    problems he admitted was caused by years of smoking. After a week of
    treatments, he finally passed away at his home yesterday at the age of
    83.

    The world lost a great actor and a great man.

    He truly was, and ever shall be, our friend.

    And we should also take Dr. McCoy’s advice as well, for he was right in
    saying that he’s not truly dead as long as we remember him.

    LLAP.

  • Good Bye Mr. Nimoy.
    Cybertron and all its moons belong to you.

  • Michael Paolucci

    For all that he will be remembered for, I hope his humanity is never forgotten, it set him apart from the rest of Hollywood, and he never forgot to be thankful to those who raised him to where he was! A true Gentle-man!

    A fine man, a good soul. Now he and Dr. McCoy can continue their philosophical debates in heaven.

    With the passing today of Leonard Nimoy we lose part of the lore of “Space – the final frontier”. Our imaginations, inspired by he and the Star Trek TV series, inspired many to dream the impossible and made it real. He will be missed. “Live long and prosper”.

    OMG I just spoke to my wife earlier this week of having a feeling Mr Nimoy would pass soon, and I didnt even know he was ill. Ever since I can remember I tried to think what the “logical” thing to do was in difficult situation. Mr Spock taught me that and I shall never forget it. Condolences to your family and friends and I think I would be safe in saying the whole world considered you a friend. RIP Mr Spock.

    My teenage years just got lost in all those episodes of Star Trek. He sounded quite assured of what’s going to happen next. His presence in the series gave out a feeling that Captain Kirk may do go out on the limb but he was around to clean up the mess.

  • niromi

    i was always a trek fan and later on i introduced my kids to the joys of star trek we watched all the old episodes and the movies with the old cast and crew and my son thought the new one was nice but not as much fun this coming from my 10 year old and we loved spock his voice was relaxing got some of his audio books and it was brilliant RIP Leonard Nimoy you’ll surely be missed

    I feel as though I’ve lost a dear friend. Leonard, you are truly, in reality, floating among the stars.

    Leonard Nimoy R.I.P.

    鈥淥f all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most鈥 human鈥

    I was in a theater when these words were first spoken and there was not a singel dry eye in the house and then to here Leonard say 鈥 Space the final fronteer鈥︹.鈥 again more tears. As we all left the theater people were already speaking of how he must return. They just would not except that Spock was gone. So in Hollywood鈥檚 great wisdom they found a way to make his return. I find my self sitting here in shock at the passing of Nimoy, Knowing that this time Hollywood is not in charge and he will not be coming back to us.

    In my heart Leonard Nimoy will for ever and always be Spock. Leonard Nimoy was so much more than just a character in a television show. That said. he and the other characters that Roddenberry brought together changed the face of our planet. Kids grew up and became Scientists and Astronauts and Engineers that otherwise would not have. It was not just the vision that Gene Roddenberry had. It was the people that brought the characters to life. Only William Shatner could be James T. Kirk and only
    Leonard Nimoy could be Spock鈥..and he was.

    I say good bye to you Leonard Nimoy. Thank you for all that you have given. The sun shall not shine as bright. You will live on in the minds hearts and imaginations of so very many people.

    I started with a quote and I shall end with one.

    鈥 It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done, it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known

    Your Greatest Fan鈥ichael J Strasser

    I’m sad, I grew up watching him! I have 3 older brothers, the first is 11 yrs older, and the first picture he ever took was of spock on star trek when he was about 6. I loved in search of, and that iconic voice. No more appearances on any more star trek movies, just sad! He will be missed! May he rest in peace.

    We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet it should be noted that in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most… human.
    –James T. Kirk

    While Leonard Nimoy will be forever known as “Mr. Spock”, he did a lot of other work, too. He did voice-overs on many shows, was a narrator, a poet, a writer, as well as an actor. I looked him up on IMDb, and his credentials were phenomenal. His career spanned almost 6 decades. It’s a shame that most people will only remember him as Mr. Spock with the pointy ears.

  • Jim Wilkes

    Leonard Nimoy, you will remembered. As a child i use to look up at the night sky and imagine myself as the brave captain of a starship. Thank you for those childhood dreams and imaginings.

    The line: “Of all the souls i have encountered in my travels, his was the most….human”. Is excellent.

    I always enjoyed this one as well: “I have been and ever shall be your friend”.

    Goodbye my friend, i wish we would have met.
