RIP Gene Wilder

Not perhaps directly speculative fiction, but he was the one true Willy Wonka.

The comic actor who also played roles in Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles died due to complications from Alzheimer's disease - an illness he asked not be disclosed.

His career was almost entirely in comedy, and he was apparently great to work with. And he will always be Willy Wonka (Sorry Johnny Depp, but it didn't work).
