Crater C: Tater Crater, for Foster "Tater, The Music Maker" Wiley - March 25, 1947 - September 10, 2010
There's a chance to enter the history books (or at least a planetary geography atlas) as NASA is asking the public to help name five prominent features on Mercury, the tiny planet closest to the Sun.

I will be suggesting Dick, Lem, Lessing, Strugatsky, still thinking about the fifth, I would suggest Abe, but he has the same surname as our horrid PM.
Would like to suggest whoever in Deep Purple wrote Space Trucking, before my time, but I love the song. Doesn't meet the criterion on period of death.
