Leonard Nimoy died today in his home at the age of 83 according to reports. He was suffering from heart disease and had been sent home from the hospital early this week with chest pains. He had announced he was struggling with the disease 3 years ago and attributed it to years of smoking.

My Dad is one of those Trekkers and I have lots of fond memories growing up watching Star Trek. I will personally miss his cameos in the new movies. His presence tied the whole series together. Today is a sad day for anyone that is a Sci-Fi fan.
