Very sad day indeed, we lost a true genius at heart. May he rest in eternal peace. 

My favorite quote imo, — "If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans."

Its funny two days before he died I was talking with someone who was telling me a story: her father had given her the book A Brief History of Time before he passed away and she hadn't read it. It had been packed into boxes when she moved into her new apartment. Suddenly, the book fell from out of nowhere onto the floor, with nothing it could have fallen from. She felt it was her father sending a sign that there is life after death.

According to a friend Hawking had a good sense of humor in spite of his physical handicaps. By her description Hawking would stay behind a column at Cambridge University near a place where visitors frequently took photographs. Just as someone raised a camera he would roll out from behind the column and photo-bomb the person.
