KamikazieActually though, I was reading about this guy and he was kind of a bad-ass. He was shot six times during the D Day invasion, once in the finger (shot it clean off; he kept it hidden in the show) twice in the legs, once in the chest (where the bullet was stopped by a silver cigarette holder). Scotty was F*CKING HARDCORE!!1! And in 2000, aged 80, Doohan boldly went into fatherhood for the seventh time when his then 43-year-old wife gave birth to a daughter, Sarah.

I also saw that. Badass indeed. He gave it all he had. R.I.P :beer: :beamme:

A sad day indeed. He has always been my favorite character from TOS. He truly was the "miracle worker". But even he..."dinna 'av the power". Good Bye Scotty. :(

This world will never forget you Engineer Scott. It can not happen. All the peoples you have effected and who has loved you and your part in the show, as well as the people who are your family, nobody will ever forget how you kept the Enterprise floating through the seas of the stars, and nobody in your family will forget how you kept things going down here on ear. Talk about a man of much influence, keeping a whole starship under control, and keeping a world under control. It sounds like a job for only one man, as only one man could succeed in it, James Montgomery Doohan, also known as Montgomery Scott, Cheif Engineer of the USS Enterprice 1701, on its five year mission to explore strange new worlds and civilizations, only this man could do the said job. I respect you with all my heart and love you for all that you have done for the world. The world has lost a lot due to pneumonia and Alzheimer's disease on the day you left us Scott. If there is something after life and death, another strange new world perhaps, another civilization that needs to be explored, I'm sure it is James/Scott that will come out on top. My good wishes to you on your trip through the worlds of the dead, and may you shine a light in them and make everyone realize that there is nothing anyone can do to remove your influence from the world. Keep on Trekin' on your trips to the places where No Man Has Gone Before, and we will miss you, we already do. Keep on Rockin' Scotty. Goodbye.

PS: After writing that, I realize that my eyes are watery, it's amazing how the death of someone you have never met but still love can effect you.

A 9 year old little girl. That is sad...

I caught a thread like this, on another forum. I didn't notice the one here, untill now. I also did not hear about his daughter. It is a shame that she had to loose her dad. My Prayers will be with their family.

actually i am suprised that nobody mentioned that he was born in british columbia *[COLOR=Red]CANADA[/COLOR]* and that he was raised in Sarnia Ontario attended high school there and at 18/9 he joined the canadian army and served in world war 2, and on D-Day he was shot on the on the beach by a machine gun and that he lost his right middle finger. and if you look closly you can notice it missing on the show but it is very well hidden.
