  Hawking was an extraordinary man and a great scientist whose work and legacy will live on for many years. His courage and persistence, brilliance and humor, inspired many people across the world.

"I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark," said Hawking.

He also spoke of death, "I'm not afraid of death, but I'm in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first."

Hawking leaves behind three children, Robert, Lucy, and Timothy, from his first marriage to Jane Wilde, and three grandchildren.
