What can be said about Gordon B. Hinkley? The 15th President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, President Hinkley was beloved by millions of people across the globe. His influence among Mormons and non-Mormons alike is a testament to the character and beliefs of this great man.
Normally, I'd include a brief biological sketch of this great man, but I will defer the reader to Grandpa Bill's General Authority website.
Instead, I'd prefer to honor the man by including a bit of his testimony of his Lord and Savior.
"Jesus was in very deed the great Jehovah of the Old Testament, who left His Father’s royal courts on high and condescended to come to earth as a babe born in the most humble of circumstances. His birth was foretold centuries earlier by Isaiah, who declared prophetically, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace” (Isa. 9:6).
This Jesus Christ of whom we solemnly testify is, as John the Revelator declared, “the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth.” He “loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever” (Rev. 1:5–6)."

President Hinkley is buried with his wife, Marjorie.
