SALT LAKE CITY (News4Utah)- The Utah Jazz will hold a special tribute to honor LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson during their game Wednesday.
Monson passed away Tuesday night at the age of 90.
The Larry and Gail Miller family and the Jazz organization issued the following statement:
“His lifelong service and his impact on the world will always be remembered. He was an example of pure service, always looking after those in need, including our family as he provided comfort by visiting Larry, another West High boy, many times during his long illness. We are honored to have had a close relationship with him and will miss him.”
President Monson was a loyal fan of the Jazz. Before Wednesday night’s game a moment of silence will be held in his honor.
