Leonard Simon Nimoy (March 26, 1931 – February 27, 2015)[1] was an American actor, movie director, poet, musician and photographer. He was famous for playing the character of Spock on Star Trek, an American television series that was made for three years in the late 1960s.

Shortly after he was photographed in a wheelchair and using an oxygen mask, Nimoy said in February 2014 that he had been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).[2] Little over a year later, Nimoy died from the disease on February 27, 2015 at the age of 83 in his Bel Air home.[3]
