Throughout his illness, Leonard kept in touch with fans through Twitter and his last tweet written on Monday (February 23rd) read, “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.  LLAP” LLAP stands for his famous Star Trek line “Live Long and Prosper.”

Leonard played Spock for 40 years — most recently in 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness. He also directed several Star Trek films as well as 3 Men And A Baby.
