Detroit Lions owner dies at 88
March 10 , 2014
The last surviving grandchild of Henry Ford and the owner of the Detroit Lions died at the age of 88 due to pneumonia. William Clay Ford helped his family business for over five decades and bought a business of his own as well.
"My father was a great business leader and humanitarian who dedicated his life to the company and the community," his son said.
Ford was known by a select few and considered to be a dignified man. He joined the Ford Motor Co. at the age of 23, which was one year after the death of his grandfather.
