Over the last few months we’ve lost some legends in Muhammad Ali and Gordy Howe. Ali was a three-time heavyweight king. Equally important, maybe more so, was his fight for a cure of Parkinson’s disease of which he suffered from for three decades. He helped thousands get needed health and treatment over the years. “Mr. Hockey” turned pro at the age of 18 and enjoyed 32 spectacular professional seasons, many with his beloved Red Wings. Gordy lived to give 100% of his body to hockey and 100% of his heart to family, friends and millions of fans he so loved. You’ve heard the saying that everything happens in 3’s… Last week Reid Ashton, founder of the many starred Golden Mushroom, died after a short illness. Reid was very devoted to the hospitality industry and served as the President of the Michigan Restaurant Association and as a Board Member of the National Restaurant Association. He was a voracious fundraising machine for the Michigan Culinary Team and I cooked many diners at the Shroom that he hosted as fundraising events. He, like Ali and Gordy gave back selfishly to society. What role models they are for the rest of us!
