Boyd K. Packer passed away earlier this month and was a lifelong artist and artisan. An article on LDS.org said of Packer, “Ever since his childhood in the farming community of Brigham City, Utah, President Boyd K. Packer has had a love of nature and art. Of particular interest to him have been birds and animals. In high school, he had ambitions to become an artist, but World War II led him in another direction.”
