RIP Stephen Hawking

Quote:
(CNN)Stephen Hawking, the brilliant British theoretical physicist who overcame a debilitating disease to publish wildly popular books probing the mysteries of the universe, has died, according to a family spokesman. He was 76.
Considered by many to be the world's greatest living scientist, Hawking was also a cosmologist, astronomer, mathematician and author of numerous books including the landmark "A Brief History of Time," which has sold more than 10 million copies.

It seems fitting that Hawking should pass away on Pi Day (3.14).

A great mind trapped in a failing body.

I had the honor of meeting him twice over the years.

Very nice, great sense of humor.

Sounds like you have an interesting story or two to share about a fascinating person. Please forgive me if it's too personal, but are you a physicist, or otherwise a scientist/mathematician/academician? How did you meet him? On what occasion? Did you have an opportunity to enjoy a significant conversation with him? (Of course I understand and appreciate if you prefer to not answer, preserving personal information. This surely isn't the best place for this discussion. But you've been fortunate, so please consider sharing just a little more.)
