William C. Ford, grandson of Henry, father of Bill Jr., former CEO of Ford Motor Company and long-time owner of the Detroit Lions passed away at home in Grosse Pointe Shores at 89 years of age.
The biggest thing that I have always bragged on Mr. Ford about is that he treated everyone the same. It didn’t matter if you where another hugely successful person in the auto industry or if you were driving him somewhere or working in his yard or doing anything for him, waiting on him at a restaurant. He treated everybody the same. He was as humble as you could possibly be for a man as successful as he was.
