SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Funeral services for top-ranking Mormon leader L. Tom Perry have been scheduled for Friday in the Tabernacle on Temple Square in Salt Lake City.

Church spokesman Eric Hawkins said Monday the funeral will begin at 11 a.m. Friday.

Perry was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ highest governing body, the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. He died Saturday at the age of 92 in Salt Lake City from cancer.

Perry spoke regularly at church conferences and was one of four leaders to meet with President Barack Obama during his recent Utah trip.

His son, Lee Perry, said his father died within 40 days of being diagnosed with rare anaplastic thyroid cancer and his family was shocked how it spread like “wildfire.”
