President Gerald R. Ford died Tuesday at the age of 93. President Ford was the oldest living President and a uniquely structured individual who took charge of our nation at an unfortunate and troubled time. President Ford was raised just north of Kalamazoo in Grand Rapids and he later attended University of Michigan as a star on the football team. Ford later studied and coached football at Yale during his quest for his Juris Doctrate. President Ford married Elizabeth Bloomer in 1948 and has four children, Susan, John, Steven, and Michael.
President Ford held a positive and realistic spirit during his time in office, whether he was in the White House or not, always maintaining, “I am a loyal Wolverine. When they lose in football, basketball, or anything I still get darn disappointed.”
