After arriving at the Valley of the Latte ancient Chamorro Village, Ulitao and all present, gathered to pay respects to a true friend. The family and friends of Chris Bejado continued his love for the culture of the island and presented Ulitao with a generous donation in Chris Bejado's name. It was one of many beautiful ceremonies that continue to share the generous nature of Chris Bejado.
Local businessman Christopher Bejado died yesterday. He was the president of Marianas Slingstone Inc., which does business as Proa restaurant. He was 45 years old.
He is survived by his wife, Cora Yanger Bejado, and his three daughters, Natalie, Camille and Kathleen.
Bejado opened Proa with business partner and Chef Geoffrey Perez in 2006 in Tumon in front of the Gov. Joseph Flores Memorial Park and opened a second location in 2012 in Hagåtña. ... Bejado was the 2013 U.S. Small Business Administration's Person of theYear for Guam.
To homegrown foodies and those who visited from faraway lands, Christopher “Chris” Bejado’s restaurant offered a Guam dining experience that’s distinctively local.
Chris Bejado was among a very small circle of local entrepreneurs who defied a high failure rate in the business of starting a restaurant from scratch — in Guam’s small market.
