He was more than forty years older than Sheldon and perhaps the only living older man he knew with whom he could identify in terms of respecting his knowledge and who knew Amy. From what we've heard of them his uncles weren't men he'd respect enough and they didn't know Amy anyway. Stephen Hawking, according to Sheldon's own words was his friend due to that "Fun with Friends" game he played with him. That and with those twenty something voice messages where he was down right disrespectful to him are the only times we know that he contacted Dr Hawking. There was two times Dr Hawking contacted him, although one time was with Leonard as well. Then throw in the time Sheldon feigned in front of the man. I'm sorry, I don't see any father figure actions. Maybe it happened off screen, but that is open each persons interpretation. Now, I can see Sheldon asking Dr Hawking's opinion on whether he should get married, but not permission. Just watched the beginning of S11/E1 and he asked for Stephen Hawking's blessing, not opinion. Even Amy, Penny and Leonard were wondering why he would get the man's blessing.
