Ángel Abrea (born 13 September 1933)[1] was the first resident of Latin America to become a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church).[1]

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Abrea was baptized into the LDS Church in 1943, at the age of ten. He graduated from the University of Buenos Aires, and worked as an accountant at Deloitte Haskins & Sells.[2] Prior to his call as a general authority, Abrea was the first stake president in Argentina (1966–71; 1976–78);[2] he also served as a regional representative (1971–76)[2] and as president of the church's Argentina Rosario Mission (1978–81).[1]

Abrea was called by LDS Church president Spencer W. Kimball as a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy on 20 March 1981. Abrea also became the first president of the Buenos Aires Argentina Temple[1] when it opened in 1986. On 4 October 2003, Abrea was designated as an emeritus general authority and released from full-time ecclesiastical duties.

Abrea married María Victoria Chiapparino[2] in Argentina on 4 July 1957. The Abreas and their three daughters[2] were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on 26 September 1966.
