Little Caesar’s founder Mike Ilitch passed away last week at the age of 87. The Detroit businessman was a well-known philanthropist and championed many charities throughout Detroit and Michigan. Now, one story about the pizza founder’s generosity has made the news following his passing.

A friend of Ilitch shared a touching story of how the businessman came to rescue of Rosa Parks during a time in her life. Parks was robbed in her home, and Ilitch took it upon himself to find her safer housing. In addition, he paid her rent for over a decade.

The online community took to Facebook and Twitter to express their gratitude for his generosity.
