Governor Herbert’s Statement on Passing of Elder Scott

Gov. Gary R. Herbert issued this statement following the passing of Elder Richard G. Scott of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:

“Elder Scott was a kind and generous leader. His unwavering faith and pursuit of lifelong learning was an example to each one of us. I was especially touched by his heartfelt devotion to his late wife Jeanene. Their relationship has always been an inspiration to Jeanette and me. The First Lady and I extend our deepest sympathies to members of the Scott family and to all with whom he served. His leadership will certainly be missed.”
