Yesterday’s answer:
C   David B. Haight
David B. Haight was born in the rural community of Oakley, Idaho, on 2 September 1906. His family knew hardship early as the father, a bishop and successful town baker, died of a heart attack when Elder Haight was nine. Elder Haight had already lost one little brother three years earlier, and two more deaths followed in the same year as his father’s—another brother and a sister. His mother valiantly raised the family in spite of her own failing health. Very early, Elder Haight had adult responsibilities and learned to work hard. He was, however, a typical boy. When he was twelve, he decided to try his hand at driving the family Ford. He got it going but didn’t know how to work the brake, so he just drove it around and around the block until it finally ran out of gas. He loved the swimming hole near his home and once saved a little girl from drowning in it.
