William Miller is technically the founder of the Seventh Day Adventists. He predicted the return of Christ to be by 1844, but was obviously disproven.

Ellen White could be said to be the one who “saved” the denomination. Her writings and teachings impacted many, but the denomination itself believes that she was a prophet of God. Her idea of vegetarianism being a way of better understanding God and scripture persists to this day.

Seventh Day Adventists do not necessarily believe in a literal heaven and hell right after death; rather, they view death as a form of sleep that the dead will endure until the Second of Christ, in which the wicked will be annihilated and the righteous will be reunited with Christ.
