I remember his black hole entropy insight was so simple and yet so profound.

Fascinating. From the article:
That's a pretty damned impressive impact for someone you've probably never heard of. Rest in peace, Jacob Bekenstein. You will be missed. Your ideas will live on.
I concur. RIP

Jacob Bekenstein has died of a heart attack at age 68. Amazing that Hawking has now outlived him.
