The world renowned British scientist wrote several landmark books, including "A Brief History of Time".
Stephen Hawking's children paid tribute to the "extraordinary man". "His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humour inspired people across the world", they said.
Stephen Hawking was the father of modern cosmology.
"He once said, "It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love". Hawking lived with the normally fatal illness for over 50 years.
"I have been very successful in my scientific work, and have become one of the best-known scientists in the world", he said. The book sold more than 10 million copies, and has been translated into 35 languages. To the layman, the robot-like voice only seemed to give his words added authority.
In 1974, he became one of the youngest fellows of Britain's most prestigious scientific body, the Royal Society, at the age of 32.
"I fit the stereotype of a disable genius in that I'm clearly disabled but I'm not a genius like Einstein was", Hawking said.
Much of that work centred on bringing together relativity - the nature of space and time - and quantum theory - how the smallest particles in the Universe behave - to explain the creation of the Universe and how it is governed. His life was the subject of an award-winning movie, "The Theory of Everything".

The Nobel Foundation excludes posthumous nominees.
Stephen William Hawking, though, was far from normal.
Many experts said Professor Hawking defied medical science by reaching his 70s with such a debilitating condition.
Hawking's death, according to the AP, was announced by a family spokesperson. He had two younger sisters and a brother.
He then graduated with first-class honours in natural science at Oxford's University College.
He was given only a few years to live after being diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 1963 at the age of 22.
Hawking had a slow-progressing form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) that gradually paralysed him.
In 1970, Hawking realised the mathematical approaches he developed with Penrose could be applied to black holes, a term coined by physicist John Wheeler. The couple split after 25 years and he married his former nurse, Elaine Mason, but the union broke down amid allegations, denied by him, of abuse. They divorced in 2007.
