Presidents of the Utah-based faith are considered prophets who lead the church through revelations from God in collaboration with two top counselors and members of the Quorum of the Twelve. Nelson is likely to be formally named to the post in the coming days under longstanding church protocol created to ensure a smooth handover by giving the post to the longest-tenured member of the governing Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Nelson would become the second-oldest person to be named president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Those who knew him remembered him as a humble man. William Walker, a former general authority for the church who worked closely with Monson for many years, was quoted in a news report from National Public Radio. He also served in the Korean War as a U.S. Army medic and was stationed in Korea, Japan and the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., the LDS states on its website. The next president was not immediately named, but the job is expected to go to the next longest-tenured member of the church’s governing Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Russell M. Nelson, per church protocol. He related a story about Monson, whom he often traveled with. Monson is survived by three children, eight grandchildren, and many great-grandchildren. Throughout his life, Monson was an avid fisherman who also raised homing pigeons, specifically, roller pigeons who twirled as they flew. Despite softening his rhetoric against LGBTQ people, Monson was also responsible for banning baptisms for children living with gay parents, and instituting a requirement that those children had to officially disavow homosexual relationships before being allowed to serve a mission with the LDS church – an important right of passage within the religion. He led the faith’s involvement against the passage of gay marriage in California in 2008 while simultaneously encouraging it members to be more open and compassionate toward gays and lesbians. Thomas Monson, leader of the Mormon church, has died at the age of 90 at his home in Salt Lake City, Utah, the church said on Wednesday. Dantzel passed away in February 2005, and in April 2006, Nelson married Wendy Watson. Monson served most of his adult life in leadership positions of the church.
