The commitment shown by Mike Ilitch to Detroit was returned to the Ilitch family in an intimate manner by those who visited to pay their respects.

Keith was working with a real estate developer to try to find Parks a safer place to live when they received an unsolicited call from Ilitch wanting to help. The billionaire started paying Parks' rent in 1994 and did so for 11 years, up until her death in 2005. The founder of Little Caesars, Ilitch owned the Detroit Tigers baseball team as well and was considered one of the more charitable souls in the Detroit area.

Ilitch's passing is a huge loss for both the sports world and the Detroit community.
"Mike, on another note, I was looking over my file for Rosa Parks, specifically, after she was beaten up and we rallied together to get her in the Riverfront Apartments (where she remained until her passing)", it states.
"To go over there and see Mrs. Ilitch and give a hug, it's nice to be able to do that", he said, according to a report by George Sipple in the Deroit Free Press.
