(CNS) Leonard Nimoy, the ever-logical Mr. Spock in “Star Trek” on television and on the silver screen, died this morning at his Bel-Air home of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease — chronic bronchitis and emphysema. He was 83.
Nimoy revealed last year that he had the disease and blamed years of smoking. He was hospitalized last week.
Nimoy’s Star Trek co-star William Shatner paid his respects on Twitter, noting: “I loved him like a brother. We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love.”
Flowers are to be placed on his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 10:30 a.m.
