Given his recurring semi-pivotal role on The Big Bang Theory, I expect we can look forward to an interesting post-credits blurb at the end of this week's episode. Given that his character operates a comic-book store, this would be a great opportunity to let the character of Stuart stretch out a bit, and maybe provide a nice homage to Lee. But I imagine that wouldn't be until next week.
Definitely had an impact on me--created & co-created a lot of characters that were part of my childhood, adolescence and beyond. (Especially Spider-Man)
I haven't read a new comic in many years, but many of the ones I did read have stayed with me.
So not the biggest influence in my life, maybe not even the biggest pop culture influence-- but still an impact.

Very sad he's gone. I realize of course that he was 95 but he always seemed so youthful and full of life and enthusiasm. I was watching a couple of interviews he gave on YouTube. Here he is with Conan O'Brien in 1995:
