We’ve got some sad news to report today as it appears that Salt Lake Comic Con Alumnus Leonard Nimoy has died at the age of 83 following a brief illness. Nimoy most famously portrayed Spock in the Star Trek TV Series and the films that followed. According to the New York Times, who reported his death, Nimoy had been hospitalized earlier this week with end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Aside from Star Trek, Nimoy appears on the TV series Fringe and was an avid photographer and author, with several books published under his name. Nimoy was such a thoughtful and compassionate person who wasn’t afraid to use his celebrity to advocate for causes he cared about. He really did march to the beat of a different drum and, by example, encouraged other people to do the same. Born in 1931, he left an indelible mark on pop culture during his time on this planet.
