After an illness of only two days with pneumonia, Pavil M. Wilson, age 38, well known real estate dealer, died at 2:05 AM today at the Bloomington Hospital. The news of his death was a shock to the community as he had been in his office in the Citizens Loan and Trust Company building Wednesday and had transacted business as usual. He closed a real estate deal on that day selling the Clyde Snoddy property on South Park Avenue to H. E. Wolfe. Wednesday evening, after going to his home at 702 East 10th Street, Mr. Wilson became ill suffering a severe chill. His case was diagnosed as pneumonia and a nurse was put in attendance, but his condition was not thought serious until Friday. He was taken at 7:10 PM Friday to the hospital where oxygen was used in an effort to relieve his condition. The treatment, however, was unavailing and death came this morning. Mr. Wilson had followed an active career of selling real estate and building houses since 1924 when he became associated with Dr. J. C. Vermilya. During this partnership the firm opened the Wilson-Vermilya subdivision in the southeast part of the city and built houses on it for sale. They also constructed a number of houses on East 1st Street including a model home that was exhibited to the public. In 1930, Mr. Wilson bought the interest of Dr. Vermilya and since that time had confined his activities almost entirely to the buying and selling of real estate. He was responsible for the leasing of some of the downtown rooms by out-of-the-city companies including the J. C. Penney store on the west side and superintended the construction of the new building in which the Penny store is housed. He also handled the lease of the Kroger store from the Jesse Howe estate and acted as agent in the recent sale of the Thrasher building on the south side of the square to Dr. Frank Mathers. Mr. Wilson was a native of Spencer and came here in 1917 to attend Indiana University as a pre-med student. While attending the university he made his way by working at the barber trade in the Len Hanna shop. Abandoning his idea of a medical career, Mr. Wilson took up the handling of real estate and was one of the most successful dealers in the city. He was married to Miss Ruth Mugg of near Quincy who survives him. He is also survived by one daughter, Mary Ellen, 10, and his father, O. L. Wilson, of Spencer. Funeral services will be conducted from the residence at 702 East 10th Street Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock by Dr. William Harris of Indianapolis. Interment will be at Quincy. Pallbearers will be Q. Austin East, George W. Henley, Roy O. Pike, Dr. J. E. Moser, Ed Pless, James Jordan, W. H. Thom and John P. O'Donnell. The body lies in state at the residence.
