Hatch Statement on the Passing of Elder Richard G. Scott

Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, the senior Republican in the United States Senate, issued the following statement in reaction to the passing of Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints:

“I was deeply saddened to hear of Elder Richard G. Scott’s passing. Elder Scott's dedication to God was evident in his service to others. As a missionary, a father, and an apostle, he worked tirelessly  and served selflessly. Many of us were inspired by his counsel, and even more were blessed by his example. Elder Scott was a man of great faith and unbending principle, who—in his own quiet way—spent decades sharing the light of Christ with people throughout the world. We will miss him dearly.”
