Lions Owner Passes Away

William Clay Ford Sr., who helped steer Ford Motor Co. for more than five decades and owned the NFL's Detroit Lions, has died at the age of 88.
The company said in a statement that Ford died of pneumonia at his home. He was the last surviving grandson of company founder Henry Ford.
Ford's first full season leading the Lions was in 1964, seven years after the franchise won the NFL title. The only playoff victory he enjoyed was in 1992.
