LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today issued the following statement on the passing of William Clay Ford Sr.:
"We are saddened to observe the loss of Mr. Ford. The Fords are among Michigan’s iconic, founding families, and he was an innovator in the family tradition as well as a strong leader.
"Like his grandfather, he was passionate about automobiles and the auto industry, the city of Detroit and his family. He embodied the resilience, ingenuity and leadership that brought Ford Motor Co. and Detroit great success, and sustained both through tough times.
"On behalf of Michiganders and our state, we honor his legacy and offer deepest condolences to his family."
