Interesting True Tale of an Eccentric Billionaire's Estate Woes
6 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Larry Hilblom co-founded DHL became wealthy then semi-retired to Saipan where he dabbled in a diverse array of businesses, aviation, and secretly fathering illegitimate children. Lacking a pilot's license and surviving a serious plane crash did not deter Larry from the skies. He figured if you survive one crash then you have a free pass the rest of your life. He figured wrong. Died in a plane crash. His will directed all his monies to be managed by a foundation with the principal beneficiary the University of California. Numerous island mothers from near and far soon came out of the woodwork claiming a piece of Larry's fortune for their son/daughter of Hilblom. And the race was on. Very interesting story, told well.
