Leonard Nimoy, famous as Mr. Spock on ‘Star Trek,’ dies
Yes, he was ‘famous’ as Mr. Spock; but more than that, he was a true renaissance man, a man of so many talents. And more important, he was an intelligent, warm, man. He was as far removed from a ‘celebrity’ as one could be. He loved and was loved by his two children, Adam and Julie. He loved and respected his mother and father. And they were proud of the ‘good son’ they raised.
And he was a good friend to so many people, myself included. Over the years in Show Business, I made friends with a great many; but none like I did with Leonard. I got to know his family. I spent several days in his home. In Boston, he took me to dinner in his parents’ home.
So many good memories. But for now, my farewell post will be short. Some stories have already been posted, many others will follow.
R.I.P. to the man so many knew as Mr. Spock and I knew as Leonard.
