I am nominating my husband for the hardest working man. My husband was laid off 4 years ago from a local company in the middle of the economic down turn. He spent 2 years working a minimum wage job to keep our family eating. Then had a chance to take his dream job as a county sheriff, but because the salary wouldn’t be enough to send our two boys to school and support our family, he let the his dream go to take a higher paying job in Berkley. So now, he works out of town 6 days a week. He leaves Sunday nights and returns on Friday nights. He works over 40 hours a week, missing his family and regular family activities, his kids sporting events and enjoying his home in the mountains, just for his family to be well taken care of. He is only home a day and a half, and when he is home he is fixing all the things i cannot, like putting in a new fire place, remodeling my master bath so i am comfortable at home when he is away. His fix it list is a mile long, but he is always working to make sure we are safe and well taken of. He works hard for all of us and doesn’t spend much time for himself. I want him to know how much he is appreciated and that we love him and how much of his personal happiness he has sacrificed for his family.
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!!!
