CHICAGO – September 19, 2011. Governor Pat Quinn released a statement on the passing of former U.S. Senator Charles H. Percy, who served the people of Illinois from 1967 to 1985.

"I am saddened to hear of Senator Charles Percy's passing. Senator Percy was a very talented man, with a strong dedication to public service. I admired Sen.

May our thoughts and prayers be with him and his family during this time as we remember a life well-lived by an exemplary public servant."
