Retired hotelier remains ambassador of aloha
“I was the only one they hired because the uniform fit. If I had been taller or shorter, I wouldn’t have gotten that job,” said Tony Delpiano, speaking about his first hotel job as a bellhop at the Boca Raton Hotel. He’s shown with his wife of 58 years, the former Barbara Dorsam, who worked across the hall. Delpiano is pointing at a photo of himself taken in the days when he was a general manager with Outrigger Hotels & Resorts.
