October 27, 2002

Leonard Green,

68, founder of the West Coast's largest merchant and investment banking firm and chairman of the board of the Los Angeles Opera, died Friday of complications from heart surgery in Venice, Italy, where he was on vacation.

In 1969, Mr. Green co-founded Gibbons, Green, van Amerongen, a pioneer firm in the management buyout industry. Specializing in management-led, nonhostile leveraged buyouts, Mr. Green then established his own firm, Leonard Green & Partners in Los Angeles, in 1989.

Milos Vojnovic,

50, a leader of ethnic Serbs in Croatia, died at his home in Vukovar on Friday of a heart attack. Since 1995, Mr. Vojnovic had worked to restore ties between local Serbs and Croats, though he was hated by many Croats.
