New England remembers Leonard Nimoy


CONCORD- Leonard Nimoy is remembered for a life dedicated to the arts and the iconic Mr. Spock. Speaking at the 2014 Boston-New England Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Science Awards, Nimoy spoke fondly of Spock.

"A character that has blessed my life and been such a positive influence for so many people which I'm very, very proud of," Nimoy said.

Boston was his first home, but he moved to Hollywood at eighteen to pursue what would become a long and successful career.

His portrayal of Spock left a mark on the world for "trekkies" and others. Many in New Hampshire remember Star Trek as a family affair.

Nimoy died in his home a year after announcing he was battling COPD. He quit smoking in the 80's, and made it a point to urge others to quit. Last month he tweeted, "Don't smoke. I did. Wish I never had."
