While on route to Monterey to assume his position he fell seriously ill and as a result, he would accomplish very little as governor after he arrived in October of 1791. Succumbing to his illness in April 1792, he was buried beneath the floor of the church at Mission San Carlos Borroméo de Carmelo.
