KKBN Hard Working Man(04.20.16)

Fred Killion Sr.
Fred will be 86 years old this year. He served 20 years flying in the Air force protecting his country, saving money to purchase his land in Sonora. There he served as a peace officer Dept of Correnctions for another 20 years. What makes my Dad exceptional is the work he did in the community. He served as the sole adviser for the Tuolumne County Jr. Riders when the esteemed Joe Stafford could no longer continue the heritage, helping children of all ages with their horsemanship. Fred was a adviser, and a founding member of the Twain Harte Horsemen, where he led parades, stored and hauled equipment to rides and functions, lobbied to ensure Eagle Meadow became a HORSE camp along with 4 others horse camps in the area, and led rides in those mountains for all to enjoy. He also orchestrated and constructed monuments in some of those horse camps, as he can build almost anything. When he broke his back, showing horse trails to new trail bosses it ended his horse back riding. Today, with such a strong moral compass, and keen business sense, he still advises community members when asked. He cuts and splits fire wood, clears snow from his driveway as well as many neighbors, and still finds time for feeding and checking on his cows. Boasting he has retired twice, someday he will do that again. As many in the State can attest to, they don’t come  harder working, whether lobbying Washington D.C. for truth and justice for horsemen everywhere, or working the ranch. He is an amazing man I’m proud to call Dad.
A fact many horsemen don’t know–at one time, there was legislature going to be passed to keep horses out of the back country. Fred Killion stopped that non-sense, with the help of Washington D.C., and went the extra mile to ensure the Horse Camps were put on the Congressional Maps to keep them safe.

Henry Barnett:
My loving husband Henry is well known for his amazing smile, laid back style and personality. We’ve been married 15 years and have 3 children together Bethany-16, Izak (Isaac)-13, and Preston- 10. Henry has worked as a Dialysis Technician for 20 years and is well liked by the staff and patients he works with. Even though he’s tired after working a 12 hour shift, Henry will come home and help prepare dinner and catch up on scouting goals with our boys. On his days off, he helps get our children to and from their sporting events, school activities and take or pick them up from friends houses. If he isn’t doing those things, he’s working on home improvement projects and recently put in a brand new wood floor throughout most of the house. Without his support and hard work, I wouldn’t have been able to go back to school to take classes required for my new position at work this year. Our children and I want him to know how much we appreciate  the hard work he does and respect the father and husband that he is. We love you “Hankster”

John Knigge

I would like to nominate my dad John Knigge for the hard working man. 4 years ago he suffered a blood clot that almost killed him, he since then retired from his job at the local prison and started working part time at Lowe’s. He’s always been there for both my sisters and I, our children and if course or mother. He is one of the hardest working people I know, working rain or shine, helping everyone he meets. I want him to know how much he means to us and he should be proud of himself pushing through a life threatening illness.

Wes Fredrickson
I would like to nominate my dad, Wes Fredrickson, for this weeks hard working man. My dad is an amazing father of three, husband, friend, and role model. My dad is the type of person to give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He believes if you do good for other people and help them out, the good will come back around to him. My dad is always helping out others and would be there in a heartbeat if anybody needs anything. He works as a Firefighter at San Ramon Valley Fire Department. While he is not risking his life to save others, he is at home providing for his family of 5, working on anything that needs to be done for our family and others, and managing Fredrickson Farms. My dad is a wonderful person who I look up to everyday. He deserves this award because he is the Hardest Working Man I know!!

Eli works 7 days a week sometimes 12 hours a day.  He’s a business owner and my soon to be husband!  Even in his busy schedule he makes the time to stop and smell the roses.  I love my hard working man to the moon and back.
