Leonard Nimoy, the actor most known for his role as Spock on the Star Trek television series and movie franchise, passed away this morning at his home in Los Angeles. The actor was 83 years old.

Susan Bay Nimoy, the actor's wife, confirmed his passing saying it was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which he was hospitalized for earlier in the week. Nimoy announced he had the disease last year.

Nimoy embraced his fans that came from the fame of playing the Vulcan Spock on the late 60s series Star Trek and was not shy from speaking at conventions around the country and quoting Spock telling fans to "live long and prosper." He appeared on many television shows and even did voice work for video games like Civilization IV, but one of Nimoy's most memorable appearances was when he was on The Simpsons, where he casually poked fun of himself.

Nimoy was adored by his fans and he adored them right back. While it's incredibly upsetting to lose such a wonderful person and actor, it's best to take a moment to remember the good times and the reasons why we found Nimoy to be an exceptionally wonderful person.

One thing Nimoy will most be remembered for is "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins," which was filmed in 1967 and appeared on the variety show Malibu U. Enjoy Nimoy singing about one of the most famous hobbits across the land, Bilbo Baggins.

Our thoughts are with Nimoy's family during this tough time. We'll leave you with a Tweet from Nimoy, which is beautiful for this moment, on February 23rd.

This is a tragic loss, Mr. Nimoy managed to do more than entertain us over the course of his career he managed to bring people together to enjoy that entertainment. He was the conscience of more than just Star Trek and will be dearly missed

He may have been most noted as Mr Spock, but the man was an entertainment genius, and will be missed.

When I saw the story about him being hospitalized, I had a feeling of "oh no, he's not going to make it". This is one of those times that I'm sad I was right.

Rest in peace Mr. Nimoy. I'll never forget you.

To boldly go to the great beyond.

Is the word given.

The word.

Has been given.

Engage.

No resting for the souls most needed.

Thank you kind sir for the thoughts that inspired many many stories and actors to be and yet to be.

Rest for a bit then join us in our journey once again.

On another note, thank goodness Mat posted Bilbo Baggins instead of the entirety of 'Leonard Nimoy Sings Supertramp'.
