Christopher B. Hemmeter, who transformed Hawaii tourism in the 1980s with his development of lavish mega-resorts but lost most of his fortune in the 1990s when he gambled on a grandiose but ill-fated New Orleans casino project, died Thursday at his Brentwood home. He was 64. The causes of death were Parkinson's disease and liver cancer, said his son Mark. Hemmeter's name became synonymous with opulence when he opened several "destination resorts" in Hawaii in the 1980s.
