The New York Times reports the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Fact: I'm fairly certain I've never watched an episode of Star Trek in its entirety, but like most kids, I learned how to separate my fingers into a Vulcan salute, repeating the phrase 'live long and prosper' before I had any idea what that meant.

What I do know is that Leonard Nimoy had one of the greatest voices I've ever heard, and well, when you work in radio, you tend to develop a love for others voices.

He had an amazing and storied career that touched a lot of people's lives. He'll surely be missed by more than just Trekkies.

A Vulcan salute in your honor, Mr. Nimoy!
