CONGRESSMAN TED W. LIEU STATEMENT ON MR. LEONARD NIMOY
WASHINGTON, D.C - Today, Rep. Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles) released the following statement on the death of actor Leonard Nimoy. Mr. Nimoy died earlier today at his home in Bel Air, California. He was 83.
“Leonard Nimoy was an incredibly talented artist and contributed enormously to the Los Angeles community throughout his life. I was deeply saddened today to hear of his passing. Mr. Nimoy was a constituent of mine and a longtime resident of the 33rd District. I grew up watching Star Trek, and Mr. Nimoy’s iconic portrayal of Mr. Spock brought joy to millions of people worldwide. I also want to celebrate Mr. Nimoy’s work on behalf of the Jewish community. His memory will most certainly ‘live long and prosper.’ My thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Susan, his two children and six grandchildren at this difficult time.”
