Honorio worked as a butcher for 40 years until his retirement in 2008, Member of the UFCW Local-8 Golden State, member of SPHSS Portuguese Hall of Sacramento.

In his younger years, Honorio was an avid fisherman and could be found speeding through the waters in his boat of The Sacramento River, The Delta, and The Feather River for catfish, stripers, and salmon along with an occasional trip to San Pablo Bay for the elusive sturgeon while other times on a charter boat for red snapper or halibut.

When he wasn’t fishing he would be home taking care of his lawn and landscape while growing many seasonal vegetables and table grapes and as expected of any Portuguese gentleman, he truly loved making his own wine. He was the true quintessential example of Portuguese people.
