Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove released his name Monday after locating relatives.
Honarka would often visit Biloxi casinos while his wife was visiting with relatives, Hargrove said.
Honarka had rented a room at the Beau Rivage on U.S. 90 and was struck by a vehicle about 2:30 a.m. Saturday.
He was crossing the highway from the south side at the intersection of Reynoir Street when he was struck in a westbound lane, Hargrove said.
Shumarcus Taiwain Henderson Sr., 32, of Gulfport, is held on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death. His wife, Angela Marie Henderson, 29, is held on a charge of accessory after the fact.
They remain at the Harrison County jail on bonds of $1 million and $200,000 pending court hearings.
