Wikipedia Biographical Summary:

\n

"...Gordon Bitner Hinckley (June 23, 1910 – January 27, 2008) was an American religious leader and author who served as the 15th President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from March 12, 1995 until his death. Considered a prophet, seer, and revelator by church members, Hinckley was the oldest person to preside over the church in its history...."

\n

"...Hinckley's presidency was noted for the building of temples, with more than half of existing temples being built under his leadership. He also oversaw the reconstruction of the historic Nauvoo Illinois Temple and the building of the 21,000 seat Conference Center. During his tenure, the Proclamation on the Family was issued and the Perpetual Education Fund was established. At the time of Hinckley's death, approximately one-third of the church's membership had joined the church under Hinckley's leadership..."

\n

"...Hinckley was awarded ten honorary doctorate degrees, and in 2004, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by George W. Bush. Hinckley also received the Boy Scouts of America's highest award, the Silver Buffalo, and served as chairman of the Church Boards of Trustees/Education.[1] Hinckley died of natural causes on January 27, 2008 and was survived by his five children. His wife, Marjorie Pay, died in 2004. He was succeeded by Thomas S. Monson as President of the Church..."

\n

"...Hinckley was born in Salt Lake City, Utah to prominent LDS writer and educator Bryant S. Hinckley and Ada Bitner Hinckley..."

\n

"...On April 29, 1937, Hinckley married Marjorie Pay (November 23, 1911 – April 6, 2004) in the Salt Lake Temple. They had been married for nearly 67 years at the time of her death. They had five children, including Richard G. Hinckley, a general authority of the LDS Church since 2005, and Virginia Hinckley Pearce, a former member of the general presidency of the church's Young Women organization..."

\n

"...On January 27, 2008, Hinckley died at the age of 97 while surrounded by family in his Salt Lake City apartment. According to a church spokesman, the death was due to "causes incident to age."..."
