Sylvester Quayle Cannon (June 10, 1877 – May 29, 1943) was the sixth presiding bishop of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) between 1925 and 1938 and a member of church's Quorum of the Twelve Apostles from October 6, 1939 until his death. He was the son of George Q. Cannon, an apostle and member of the church's First Presidency.

Quayle was born in Salt Lake City, Utah Territory. He studied at the University of Utah and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

In 1899, Cannon began a LDS Church mission in Belgium. Cannon then served from 1900 to 1902 as president of the Netherlands–Belgium Mission of the LDS Church.[2][3] Cannon then served as Francis M. Lyman's secretary on a three-month trip to many nations along the Mediterranean and in the Middle East.[3]

From 1916 to 1925, Cannon served as president of the Pioneer Stake in Salt Lake City.[4]

Cannon died in Salt Lake City from encephalomalacia, or softening of the brain.[5]
