Tuluyan nang namaalam ang lolo ni Paris Hilton na si Barron Hilton sa edad na 91.
Inanunsyo ni Paris ang malungkot na balita sa Instagram nitong Biyernes ng hapon, Setyembre 20.
Si Baron ay dating chairman ng Hilton Hotels at founder ng Los Angeles Chargers. Ayon sa Conrad Hilton Foundation, nakausap umano ni Paris ang kanyang lolo ilang araw bago ito mamatay.
Ani Paris, “I am deeply saddened by the loss of my grandfather Barron Hilton. He was a Legend, a visionary, brilliant, handsome, kind and lived a life full of accomplishment and adventure. Ever since I was a little girl I have looked up to him as a businessman.
“I feel so grateful to have had such an incredible mentor. I always wanted to make him proud. The last conversation we had a few days ago I told him how much of an impact he had on my life. His spirit, heart and legacy will live on in me.”
Mas pinalago ni Barron ang empire ng Hilton hotel at sinimulan niya ang American Football League. Bago ito, nagsilbi siya sa Navy at inilaan ang dalawang dekada bilang entrepreneur. (Ronaline Avecilla)
