“Rafael Larios is my dad. Native intelligence, superior work ethic, strong faith, an expert avocado and citrus farmer, entrepreneur, and an immense love for his family. As of May 2023,he retired after 45 years in the faming profession in California. If I can be half the man my dad is, I’ll be twice the man I ever thought I could be. Congratulations on your retirement and Happy Father’s Day!”

Rafael Larios es mi papá. Inteligencia nativa, ética de trabajo superior, fe fuerte, un experto agricultor de aguacates y cítricos, empresario y un inmenso amor por su familia. A partir de mayo de 2023, se retiró después de 45 años en la profesión agrícola en California. Si puedo ser la mitad del hombre que es mi padre, seré el doble del hombre que alguna vez pensé que podría ser. ¡Felicitaciones por su jubilación y feliz día del padre!
