STATEMENT FROM MIKE AND MARIAN ILITCH:

“We are saddened by the passing of William Clay Ford, Sr. and extend our condolences to the entire Ford family, the Ford Motor Company, the Lions organization and all of his employees. He led with a memorable blend of class, dignity and unwavering commitment to our community and his legacy will always be a source of pride for our city, state and nation.”

Statement from Tom Gores, Chairman and CEO of Platinum Equity and owner of the Detroit Pistons:

“I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to the Ford family and the Detroit Lions on the passing of Mr. William Clay Ford Sr. The Detroit community has lost one of its true icons. Mr. Ford was the definition of a leader in every facet of his life. His accomplishments in business, both in the automotive industry and in professional sports as the proud owner of the Lions, were exceeded only by his many civic and charitable contributions. On behalf of the Gores family, and everyone at Platinum Equity, Palace Sports & Entertainment and the Detroit Pistons, our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Ford’s family and both the Ford Motor Co. and Lions organizations.”
