Mr. Stephen Hawkins was an award-winning physicist that died on March 14, 2018 on a Wednesday morning. He had a disease called Lou Gehrigs disease. Gehrig’s disease is a nervous system disease that weakens muscles and impacts physical function. Mr. Hawkins passed away in  Cambridge, England at age 76. His family did not say the cause of his death but said that he died peacefully. Hawkins left his daughter Lucy and his two sons Tim and Robert. They thanked the fans that supported him throughout his life.

Hawkins was said to be one of the leading voices in science because of his research and work. He discovered seven major science discoveries, but the one achievement that he said he was most proud of was the discovery that Black Holes are not fully black.

In 2010 ABC news asked what advice he has given to his children and he said to “look up at the stars not down at your feet” and “never give up work because work gives you meaning and purpose. Additionally,  and life is empty without it” and ” if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away”.

Rest in Peace Mr. Hawkins
