Dr. Guy Boyd Skinner was the first born child of James D. and Margaret Boyd Skinner. In 1906, when Guy was 12, he lost his father to "Bright's Disease.", which put a strain on the family.
He managed to succeed, though, graduating from Joliet High School in 1912.
Guy attended Loyola University, studying dentistry, and even managed to aid his younger brother, Merton, in attending medical school.
Guy would be drafted into the army in WWI, though he never saw action overseas, and was honorably discharged.
He would work in Cook County hospital as an orderly during his medical school training, and this is where his sister, Erma, a nursing student at the time, introduced him to a classmate of hers, Edna Hazel Laub.
Hazel and Guy married in 1921, and moved to Wilmette, Illinois, on Chicago's North Shore. They were the parents of three children: Richard William ("Billy Dick"), Frederick Allen and Edna Margaret Skinner.
Dr. Skinner had his own dental practice in Chicago for a number of years in the famous Pittsfield Building, and had planned to retire to North Carolina when he died of renal complications in 1948.
He was remembered as a kind, humorous and giving individual. He was well liked and respected in both his personal and professional life. Guy loved the outdoors, hunting and gardening, as well as dabbling as an amateur magician.
