I'm going to go in the other direction and say Zhuge Liang.Though he later got a temple and other lavish praises,Zhuge specified that he wanted a simple burial despite the fact that he was Prime Minister and one of the greatest talents of the age.
I think that is very honourable,that he wished for no special treatment for himself rather than a big blowout funeral where the state treasury is opened up to pay for it.
