My husband, Ryan, is a hard working man. He works the graveyard shift at Chicken Ranch. When he comes home, he plays with our 1 year old son and 4 month old daughter. He’s always on the go. He never a stops. He’s always helping people. Whether it be stacking and splitting wood or working on a car. He has a heart of gold. He is truly a hard working man along with a family man.
I want to nominate my boyfriend Garrett Jones for hard working man of the month. He has been with the Forest Service for four years straight on crew 41 in Groveland. This past summer he has worked over 800 hours of over time alone out on wild land fires. I have watched him travel From Idaho to Montana back to California for the Rim Fire in our own backyard. From August 19 all the way to November 16 he was out on the Rim fire, first contributing to fighting the flames then spent 6-8 weeks working 12-14 hour shifts doing Rim Fire clean up and Rehab to get out beautiful forest back on track. On top of all the physical labor he managed to summon up more energy to make sure that our home is taken care of. I would come home from work or school to a home made dinner and a clean living room. If that doesn’t sound like one of the hardest working men then I don’t know who does I hope your consider Garrett Jones for Hard working man of the week!!
Hi Big Joe and Bridget, my name is Michele Parsons, daughter of Ray Parsons and my mom, my sister and I would like to nominate him for the hard working man award. My dad has been a firefighter for 30 years now, he is currently working in Don Pedro at the Blanchard fire station and is very well known in the community. He loves his job and often works 72 hour shifts. He is always helping others with anything they need, while also helping his family. My dad has always been the go to man when anyone needs something fixed he can always fix it, and won’t quit until its fixed, in the picture above (my dad is on the right) he is helping fix a truck. My dad has always been my rock and has helped support me in everything i do, my schooling, my sports, no matter what it is i know he will always be there, and i want to do something to appreciate him for everything he does.
I met my hard working man 10 months ago. Justin is a cabinet maker by day, and by night he is a jack of many trades. He starts his day at 5am, and before he does anything that morning, he tells me that he loves me.
When he gets home from working a long day, he gets right to work at home. He built me a whole new fence and landscaped the courtyard of my house. Whenever anything breaks and I mean anything, he can fix it. My washing machine, my electrical gadgets, my oven thingy mabob, anything. Along with being a hard working man, he is also a hard working dad.
He is a single dad to a four year old little girl. He is always there for her, and he is showing her early on how to be a good handy woman. She helps him when he’s building stuff, holding the tools for him, and cleaning up the garage as he goes. She often tells me with a power tool in hand, “I’m a good fixer, like my dad.” In addition to being physically hard working, he is mentally hard working as well.
He is always thinking of ways to be the best boyfriend I could ask for. He definitely goes above and beyond in this category. He tells me how much he appreciates me, and everything I do on a daily basis. He says as I’m leaving the garage, “Hey. I have to talk to you about something important.” As he pulls me close he asks, “Have I told you that I love you today?” I never feel unappreciated. He is very open, and we can tell each other anything. He is always working on his communication skills, and helping me to communicate and open up as well, since this isn’t my strong suit.
On Sunday when I am cleaning the house, he always helps me. Often doing a better job than I do. Sometimes when I come home from work, the kitchen is clean and he has BBQed something delicious for me. He is an expert BBQer. He takes such good care of me. I feel that it’s very hard to find someone that is hard working at work and at home and he does both perfectly. Everyday I am with him feels like I live in a romantic comedy, and he is my Ryan Gosling.
Justin works hard at every aspect of his life, which in turn puts a lot of pressure on him to be perfect. He is definitely perfect in my eyes. I couldn’t ask for a better hard working man!!!
I would like to nominate my husband David Hemm as a candidate for your Hard Working Man Contest. David is one of the hardest working people I have ever met and does his best to provide for me and our 3 year old daughter. He works for Fritz Hummer Trucking in Oakdale Ca where he hauls cows. This man enjoys his job so much and actually looks forward to going to work everyday. His job requires him to drive endless hours up and down Northern California and there are times he is gone for days on end,but he always manages to keep a smile on his face and put in a 110% even when he extremely tired. Being a cattle hauler is different than most truck driving jobs because it requires a specific and special amount of skill,patience and understanding. David has been around the country setting all his life so working with livestock is something that comes natural to him. His work hours may be long but he always makes time for his family when he is home. He puts in so much time and energy !
into his work that it allows me to stay home and be a stay at home for our daughter. He is the perfect person for this award and I hope you consider him a winner for this contest because he already is one in my book!
