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.
“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.
