A memorial will be held Saturday, March 12 to celebrate the life of Peter Scott Greene, who died from complications of hepatitis B February 10 with the certain knowledge of how dearly he was loved by his many friends.

Peter became a fixture in the Castro community when he and longtime friend, the late Jonathan Klein, channeled their shared love of adventure to create the iconic Now, Voyager Travel. Peter was a beautiful bear with a deep love for music and often sang with his friends at Martuni's and Curry Boyz. Peter had a talent for overcoming adversity. When he was gentrified out of San Francisco, he came roaring back to rebuild Now, Voyager in a remarkable act of courage and perseverance. Peter was extremely generous as a valued confidant. He was also an avid gardener, a formidable Scrabble opponent, and an enthusiastic travel partner. He will be missed by a large community of friends and family.

The memorial will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. at Noe Valley Ministry, 1021 Sanchez Street, San Francisco (between Elizabeth and 23rd Street). He always said he would want a big party with lots of singing and piano playing. Any donations should be made to Maitri Compassionate Care ( or the AIDS Emergency Fund (
