“He'll be remembered as a tireless worker, a tireless servant, and a friend of the Lord who wore out his life in the Lord's cause and was happy to do it,” were the words that fellow Apostle D. Todd Christofferson used in describing Richard G. Scott.

Elder Richard G. Scott passed away at 1:45 MDT today, Tuesday, September 22, 2015, at age 86. His life was full of service to the Lord and His children.
Though the members of the Church are saddened by Elder Scott's passing, the majority of thoughts I have heard on this matter pertain to Jeanene, his beloved wife, who passed away on May 15, 1995. Elder Scott never remarried, and he is undoubtedly ecstatic to be with her again after over twenty years of separation! They were sealed in the Manti, Utah temple in 1953.Leader Bio of Elder Scott

Yet Another Apostle Departs – My Brush With Richard G. Scott--This is from Middle-aged Mormon Man, and I loved his story about Elder Scott so much that I wanted to share. Also, if you have some time, read a few of his other works! TLPB approved for sure!
*sigh* Can you believe that there are now three vacancies in the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles?!?!? The First Presidency and the remaining Apostles need your prayers!!!!!!!!!!! They are going to be calling, through inspired revelation, THREE new Apostles in just two and a half weeks! Talk about some pressure! Pray for them to be at ease as they strive to be in tune with the Spirit.
How wonderful it is to have living prophets and Apostles on this earth who testify of Christ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Elder Richard G. Scott magnified his calling to the fullest as he served faithfully in his holy callings. I am so grateful to know that he will continue to serve just as faithfully on the other side with his beloved Jeanene next to him.
