The church announced that Elder Perry died today. Here are a few links to previous T & S posts about him:
A review of his biography here.
A discussion of one of his talks here.
If you have any recollections of experiences with Elder Perry or thoughts about his talks, you are welcome to share them here. (Here’s a fun one from Daniel Peterson.) I had no personal experience with Elder Perry, but my husband still remembers Elder Perry visiting the MTC at Christmastime and visiting with the missionaries while wearing a Santa hat.
This will be a eulogy thread–not the place for criticism. Please observe that.
