Anime News Network is reporting that Japanese voice actor Takeshi Aono has been hospitalized since May due to suffering a stroke after surgery for aortic aneurysm. From ANN:

According to Fuji TV, Aono was admitted to a hospital for surgery at the end of May, and was diagnosed with the cerebral infarction after the operation. While Aono's current condition is improving, the prospects for his return to work are uncertain.

Bin Shimada is filling in for the 74-year-old actor for his role as grandfather in the Chibi Maruko-chan anime series.

Aono's other notable credits include Piccolo in Dragon Ball and Shiro Sanada in Space Battleship Yamato. He also was the Japanese voice of Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and Doc Brown in the Japanese video dub of the live-action film Back to the Future.
