William Clay Ford, Sr, Dead At 88

By Tom Lewand

(DETROIT, MI) – It is with profound sadness that we mourn the loss of William Clay Ford, Sr, and extend our deepest sympathies to Mrs Ford and to the entire Ford family.

No owner loved his team more than Mr Ford loved the Detroit Lions. Those of us who had the opportunity to work for Mr Ford knew of his unyielding passion for his family, the Lions, and the city of Detroit.

His leadership, integrity, kindness, humility, and good humour were matched only by his desire to bring a Super Bowl championship to the Lions and to our community. Each of us in the organization will continue to relentlessly pursue that goal in his honour.
