"Michigan mourns the loss of one of the greatest Detroiters of our time, a true icon, Mike Ilitch. From humble beginnings, he was the embodiment of the American dream becoming an unparalleled businessman and entrepreneur. As someone who believed in the Comeback City when so few others did, he never lost faith in the resilience and resurgence of the city and people that made him.
