Star TrekSince his passing late last week, there have been all kinds of memorials and remembrances for Leonard Nimoy. Friends, fans, the President, and Canadians have all shared their fond memories and important lessons learned from a man who touched many, many lives. Most of us were never fortunate enough to meet him, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t have an impact. During his time on J.J. Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek reboot, he not only reprised his most famous role as Spock, often called Spock Prime, he befriended Zachary Quinto, who plays the new version of the character. The two maintained a close friendship over the subsequent years, and the younger actor crafted a moving tribute to his departed friend.

Earlier this week it came out that Nimoy had been rushed to the hospital late last week with severe chest pains. Last year, he announced that he had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which he credits to years of smoking, despite the fact that he kicked the habit more than 30 years ago.
