Trugman G. Madsen Dies at 82

Full Story from the Salt Lake Tribune.

I briefly met Brother Madsen back in 1998, while I was a missionary serving under President Dale B. Murphy in the Massachusetts Boston Mission. The occasion was a conference held at the Cambridge Ward building across the street from the Longfellow house. There I spoke with him for a few moments, but more memorably heard him give an address about the prophet Joseph as well as Brother Madsen’s experiences at the Jerusalem center. I have always enjoyed his writings and thoughts, and my condolences go to this good man’s family.

His words, his testimony and his passion for the gospel will be remembered.

It really is ironic that the same building where I heard him speak and where he spent so much time serving in the chuirch in earlier years is the one that burned within a week of his passing (See the Boston Globe article on the fire).
