Elder Wirthlin was ordained an apostle of the Church on Oct. 9, 1986. He was born in Salt Lake City to Joseph L. Wirthlin, then the Presiding Bishop of the Church, and earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Utah in business administration. He was a prominent businessman before his call as a general authority and served as president of a trade association in Utah.

After a mission to Germany, Austria and Switzerland in the 1930s, Elder Wirthlin served in a variety of ward and stake leadership positions. In 1971, he was called to be first counselor in the Sunday School General Presidency where he served until he became an Assistant to the Twelve in 1975.
