A Final Farewell to Mike Ilitch

By: Steve Kostan

Grey skies seem appropriate today as the backdrop for the public viewing of Mike Ilitch. Today’s viewing at the FOX Theater is from 12 Noon- 8:00pm. I never met the guy, but I DID get to christen his new arena, the JLA, and that huge PA in 1980 at RUSH. What I, and most of you remember about Mr. Ilitch is his dedication to the D. I remember in the mid-80’s when he moved the Little Caesar’s HQ from Farmington Hills to Downtown at the FOX. NOBODY was thinking like that then. At least it seemed that way. Think back to the early 1980’s, seeing U 2 or The Clash at the FOX. Plenty of parking! It was a wasteland. Look around now. Wow. I’m so thankful for Mike Ilitch, Penske, Gilbert, and the others. Thanks again and farewell Mike-Steve Kostan
