Mike Ilitch has died at 87. He may not go down as a "celebrity", but he is known for owning the Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Tigers, and Little Caesars chain.
This man completely turned around the Red Wings franchise from an era where they were consistently bottom of the standings, to a team that has made the playoffs 25 straight years. Plus he began construction of a new arena that unfortunately he will not be able to see completed. RIP.

One of Canada's best know broadcasters has passed away today...
Andrew Stuart McLean, (April 19, 1948 – February 15, 2017) was a Canadian radio broadcaster, humorist, monologist, and author, best known as the host of the CBC Radio program The Vinyl Cafe. Vinyl Cafe was much like the USA's "A Prairie Home Companion," that Garrison Keillor was part of.
^ Sounds like he passed from heart surgery complications and he was a bit nervous about it because he had admitted a couple of weeks prior that he been diagnosed with heart damage from a battle with rheumatic fever as a child.
As someone that almost lost their partner recently due to surgical complications, my word of advice is to always seek a 2nd opinion before rushing into any type of surgery...even if the doctor tells you that "it's a common procedure with minimal risk".
If you remember "The Gong Show", you most certainly remember Chuck Barris. He may or may not have worked for the CIA as an assassin (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind). Dead at age 87. Gong Show was a daily routine for me for a few years in grammar school. Running home so to be on time for the whole show...no VCR/DVR/On Demand like we have today!
