PHOTO GALLERY + RECAP: Elder Richard G. Scott’s Funeral

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

On September 28, 2015, family, friend, and Church leaders gathered to celebrate and remember the life of Elder Richard Gordon Scott. Elder Scott passed away on Tuesday, September 22, 2015, due to incidents of old age. He is preceded in death by his wife Jeanene and two of their children.

President Henry B. Eyring conducted the funeral, while the Mormon Tabernacle Choir provided the music. The most notable selection was Come Thou Found of Ev’ry Blessing, which proved to be a powerful closing number. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland gave the invocation and Elder M. Russell Ballard gave the benediction.

The speakers were Michael W. Scott, Elder Scott’s son, Elder D. Todd Christofferson, who served as a missionary under Elder Scott, President Russell M. Nelson, and President Thomas S. Monson. The highlights of their talks can be found by click on the photos below. Do you have a favorite memory of Elder Scott? Share it in the comments below!
