Christopher Leonard Green – a well known member of Indonesia's travel fraternity passed away in Melbourne on August 17, 2008, after a heroic battle with cancer.
More popularly known as "Chris," Green held a number of hotel positions in Jakarta and Bali, including stints with the Sari Pan Pacific Hotel and The Villas. Beginning his travel career by working with international airlines for 10 years in London, Chris later moved to Canada where he embarked on his life-long vocation as a hotelier. He left Canada in 1988 and spent 20 years in Asia, running hotels in Palau, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Thailand.
Chris, who had been living in Melbourne, left behind his daughter, Julanar Green, his wife of 35 years, Najwa Green, and his siblings, Dudley Green, Jenny Green and Pam Green.
Chris Green is remembered by family and friends as generous, supportive, and full of laughter, even in the darkest of times. He faced cancer with courage, dignity and his signature sense of humor.
His daughter said, "He loved a challenge – whether it was opening a new hotel, writing books, climbing Mt Kilimanjaro or surviving natural disasters and civil unrest."
His family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations are made in his memory to his favorite charity, UNICEF.
