Elder Harold G. Hillam, an emeritus General Authority and a former member of the Presidency of the Seventy, died March 27, 2012, at his home in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was 77.

President Ezra Taft Benson called Elder Hillam to the Second Quorum of the Seventy on March 31, 1990. He was sustained to the First Quorum of the Seventy a year later and also served in the Presidency of the Seventy from Aug. 15, 1995, to Aug. 15, 2000.
A short time after being named emeritus General Authority on Oct. 1, 2005, he was called to be the president of the Boise Idaho Temple. Sister Hillam was once again his companion, serving as the temple matron. He would preside at the temple for three years.
Throughout their marriage, the Hillams demonstrated their commitment to serving the Lord and members of the Church across the globe.
“There is never a compromise with the gospel and gospel principles,” Elder Hillam declared in 1990. “Whatever the Lord asks, we will do.”
Funeral services are pending.
