DETROIT (AP) - More members of the sports and business communities are sharing their memories of William Clay Ford, the last surviving grandchild of automotive pioneer Henry Ford and owner of the Detroit Lions.

United Auto Workers President Bob King says in a statement that William Clay Ford’s “vision and leadership helped create the unique relationship that exists between the Ford family and our UAW Ford members” that has been a factor in the automaker’s success.

General Motors Co. says Ford “leaves behind a legacy that both his family and Ford employees can be proud of.”

Brian France, NASCAR chairman and CEO, says Ford “will be remembered as a man of style, for both the automobiles he built and the life he led.”

William Clay Ford died Sunday. He was 88.
