"My father was a loving husband to our mother, Marilyn, a wonderful role model to his eight children, a loyal and generous friend, visionary businessman, respected leader and a passionate sportsman. He lived a life of great adventure and exceptional accomplishment."

“我的父親,是深愛著我們的母親Marilyn的丈夫,是八個孩子的優秀楷模,是忠誠慷慨的朋友,是有遠見的商人、備受尊重的領導者,還是充滿激情的運動員。他的一生充滿冒險和非凡成就。”

His granddaughter, Paris Hilton, said she has always looked up to him.

"I am deeply saddened by the loss of my grandfather Barron Hilton," she tweeted. " He was a legend, a visionary, brilliant, handsome, kind and lived a life full of accomplishment and adventure."

In 2007, CNN reported that Barron Hilton will pass on the $1.2 billion windfall from the sale of Hilton Hotels Corp. -- - not to his famous progeny, but to his family's philanthropic foundation. His family said he committed 97% of his wealth to the foundation's humanitarian work.

2007年CNN曾報道巴倫·希爾頓將不會把希爾頓酒店集團公司經營所得的12億美元留給他出名的后代,而是留給家族的慈善基金會。其家人稱他承諾要把財產的97%轉移到基金會的人道主義工作中。

He was born in Dallas on October 23, 1927. He moved with his father, Conrad N. Hilton, to Los Angeles in 1937 and started off his hospitality career as a teen by parking cars for hotel guests.

他于1927年10月23日出生于達拉斯,1937年隨父親康拉德·N·希爾頓搬到洛杉磯。十多歲時就為酒店客人停車,開始了他的酒店生涯。
