The community will gather for a celebration of Mr. B's owner Dennis Forbes' life.
Forbes passed away on Tuesday from natural causes. He was 62 years old.
The restaurant, located at 48550 Van Dyke Avenue, was closed on Tuesday and Wednesday as employees learned of the tragic news. Normal business hours resumed Thursday.
Forbes, of Keego Harbor, owned the Shelby Township location for more than 18 years, along with his brother, Scott.
Trent Terry, manager of the restaurant, told Patch that the community will remember Forbes for his generosity.
"He was a very, very nice man. He was very giving and donated to local schools," he said.
Terry said Forbes was also very well known in the local music industry. Dennis and Scott, along with five band members, made up the country-rock band The Forbes Brothers. The band played around the metro Detroit area and annually at the WYCD Detroit Hoedown.
Per Forbes' wishes, there will be no funeral. Instead a celebration of his life will be held Saturday at Mr. B's from 1-5 p.m.
Terry told Patch the restaurant is bracing for large crowds Saturday.
"We’re expecting to be crammed in here, with more people outside. I am talking thousands of people," he said.
