Howard W. Hunter

Howard W. Hunter

Howard W. Hunter earned his Eagle Scout Award (the highest award in an achievement program for young men) when he was 15. He was fascinated with genealogy and often spent time searching the Church genealogical library or visiting family. While serving as an Apostle, he helped choose the site for the Brigham Young University Jerusalem Center. As President of the Church, he encouraged members to worship in the temple often and dedicated the Bountiful Utah Temple less than two months before his death.
