KKBN Hard Working Man 10.21.20

Francisco Espinoza

I would like to nominate Francisco as my hard working man.

We meet years ago when we were both going through hard times after divorce. He has been my rock ever since.

When we met he was working a truck driver on weekdays and as a warehouse man on weekends. Weekday shifts started at 3:00 am and he would never know what time he was getting out. His route often was the Bay area, and if you have ever commuted towards that way either in the morning or the afternoon you are doomed for traffic. There were time when he would be out at 9:00 pm and back at it at 3:00 am. On Friday when most of us look forward to the weekend he would wake up at 5:00 am to unload trucks of meat for the startup of the week. What was done usually by 2-3 men he would do, taking inventory and rotating product.

On Saturday evening when we all think ” Sunday, rest day, he once again went to work to receive even more trucks and stack order and deliver!!! He worked like this for 13 years!

My hard working man has 5 children with his first wife, 3 adopted children (mine) and one that is ours. He is currently working 12-16 hour shifts during this pandemic and yet comes home with the greatest deposition to get stuff done around the home, help the kids with homework, and spend quality time with them playing cards or video games. I do not know where he gets all his energy. The kids ask to go on bike rides, and when most would say ” I’m tired, later or another day” he is up for it.

He is always willing to help anyone and support all his children and if you were counting that was 9! He is also the soul provider for his widowed mother which in this year has been tougher than most due to Covid.

I would love for him to be recognized locally. I know that I am thanking him for all he does and telling him how much I appreciate all he does. If it were to come from the Cabin it would be a tremendous surprise!

Even if he does not win the knowing that I shared this story with you gives me hope and makes me realize even more that we, as a family are blessed to have him.

Jim Atkins

My finance Jim is the perfect example of a hard working, resilient man.

Jim helps run his family’s 26-year-old restaurant, Two Guys Pizza in Groveland. Due to COVID-19, Jim has honestly been through it all these past six months. Two Guys having to shut down their indoor dining to comply with state requirements, new health and safety rules for food handling, power outages, change shortages, the loss of tourist season in a town that relies on the busy season to stay afloat…the list could go on.

During all this hectic juggling of trying to keep the family restaurant running strong while many businesses had to close down, Jim and I purchased our first home and got engaged.

Jim is not only always there for me, but his family means the world to him.

During the recent evacuation that Groveland experienced with the Moc Fire, Jim helped three other households pack and prep for evacuation before he even got a bag together for himself. Jim is selfless and does not know what it means to put himself first.

I am beyond proud to become this man’s wife one day. His positive outlook and encouragement that he shares with his employees daily is inspiring and motivating.

While COVID-19 can bring a lot of us down, Jim is a wonderful reminder that working hard through any situation can bring you great success and accomplishment.

Steve Thomazin

I want to Nominate my Father in Law Steve Thomazin. He is such an amazing dad and Grandfather.  

Recently due to covid our family has had to move in with them.

He works all day and comes home to play running up and down the hall chasing his 2-year-old grandson.

He is always there for anyone who needs him.  He always gives 100 percent to any project he does. 

He loves spending time with his family. Pictured with him is his first grandson Steven (named after him). They love feeding the fish in the pond and chasing each other all over. Baby Steven wants everyone to know he loves his PAPA!

Joshua Losee

I would like to nominate my fiancé Joshua Losee for the hard working man award.

Joshua is the hardest working man I know. He works as a machinist full-time 8-10 hour days, 5- 6 days a week. Giving it his all with every part he makes or machine he fixes.  But the work doesn’t stop there. Joshua comes home not missing a beat and is there to help me with chores around the house playing with our son and my personal favorite diaper changes.

On weekends he spends his time doing yard work, house work or helping me with little projects here and there and spending quality time with us whether it’s playing in the yard, tending to the animal, fishing or simply relaxing at home.

He is always willing to help family and friends with anything they need. But what he works the hardest at is providing for our family and making sure we are well taken care of!

I love my wonderful hard working man he deserves the world.

Thank you in advance,

Brandi Gerbing

Adam Fuller

Hi my name is Yvette Sausedo and my hard-working man is named Adam Fuller.  

He gets up at 3:30 a.m. in the morning to deliver beer and some Jones soda to the foothills.  

Sometimes his hours are anywhere from 10 to 16 hour a day and  can get home anytime between 5 and 7 p.m. No matter what, he still comes in the house with a positive attitude tired as heck with his back, arms and legs sore.  

He loves his job so much because he loves driving his Peterbilt truck. He takes pride in his company truck, washing it down and making sure that he represents his company.  

I am very proud of him because he really busts his butt and will also come home and help me around our house, keeping up with yard work and he’s a great at BBQing.  

I say let’s nominate him, he’s my number one and is the same with others.  

Thanks!!
