Abraham migrated from Oaxaca, Mexico in 1944 where he went to Idaho until 1945 and came to California working in various types of ranch work. In 1948 he started working for a grocery store in Santa Paula, Ca known as Siquideo’s Market for several years; from there he went to work for Chino’s Market in Santa Paula, Ca until August 1970. He opened his own business in Fillmore, Ca known as Abe’s Hi-Way Market. Abraham was always willing to help the citizens of Fillmore in any way he could, many local families went to his store for groceries. In 1995 he closed his store in Fillmore. Abraham served as President of the Rotary Club in Fillmore; he was a very well-liked man. After he retired, he returned to his beloved home in Oaxaca, Mexico. Eventually he moved back with his family here in Fillmore and here he stayed until he passed away on May 4, 2018. He will be deeply missed by all. May he Rest in Peace.

My Condolences to the Carreno Family. Growing up, we had a lot of good Memories going to the Store and laughing with Gerald and "Chapo". Abe was always so generous and kind to anyone and everyone who walked through his Store doors. It seems like just yesterday Dave and I would stop by for our snacks before we would go Hunting in the old riverbed, across the Highway. May God Bless the Family and may he Rest In Peace......

My grandpa was a loving man. Even when us kids caused him grief. I'll always cherish those memories of Abes' Hi-Way Market, where many family members and friends would gather. A local businessman who gave as much as he received from the Fillmore community, will be missed by many. You have now traveled your last journey to be with your beloved wife, Eloise Carreno. I miss you already. Your grandson....
