Mike Ilitch, who founded Little Caesars and who owned the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Tigers, died on Friday at the age of 87.

Ilitch took over on paying Parks’ rent in 1994 when he heard that there were some concerns over her welfare and safety when she became the victim of assault and robbery. He continued to pay her rent up until she died in 2005.

“It’s important that people know what Mr. Mike Ilitch did for Ms. Rosa Parks because it’s symbolic of what he has always done for the people of our city,” ~ U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Damon Keith said in 2014.

Some times there are real life superheros and maybe this guy was one? Owner of Little Cesars Pizza dies and was worth billions. As a billionaire he donated to programs of his beloved city of Detroit and to a University to build a new business school and such things. This guy done to the citiy and people more that any politican.

Apparently he never spoke about it and it only comes to light after his death. I admit I got a little choked up when I heard this. Oh and side note, he was the son of immigrants.
