For me personally his characterization of Spock taught me valuable lessons on life, expanded my mind and pushed me to become a better person. Being a “latch-key kid”, a gamer and a geek, Spock was one of my personal heroes while growing up and affected my life on so many different levels. Leonard Nimoy was in many of the TV shows and movies that were personal favorites of mine and marked generations of hackers, gamers and Sci-Fi/Fantasy fans through shows like Star Trek, The Outer Limits, Mission Impossible, The Twilight Zone, In Search of …, World of the Unexplained Museum, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Ancient Mysteries, narrator of Civilization IV and so many more. It sounds crazy that an actor could have had such a major impact on so many lives and generations of people around the world, but none the less it is true.
Leonard Nimoy’s personal message of sharing such as “The miracle is this. The more we share, the more we have” and his work of giving back to the community throughout his life is another sign of his remarkable character.
