Full Text

C. Percy Skillin, 1019 Sixth street, passed away Monday night, March 31, at his home following a lingering illness of several months duration.

Services were conducted from the residence on Thursday afternoon, the Rev. William English, an intimate friend, officiating. Burial was at Rosehill.

Mr. Skillin had been a resident of Wilmette for 12 years. He was a well known investment broker.

While at Dartmouth college at Hanover, N. H., Mr. Skillin achieved fame in athletics as a baseball pitcher. His ability in that field brought him into increased prominence in later years in Chicago amateur baseball circles and he received glowing offers from at least six major league clubs, all of which he ignored, preferring to go into business in Chicago.

Mr. Skillin is survived by his widow, Eleanor Young Skillin, two sons, Edward and David, and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edward J. Skillin of Oak Park.
