KKBN Hard Working Man 11.03.21

Dustin Kendall

Owning our own business has been tough the past year, but this January I was diagnosed with something that keeps me in bed most days. So, Dustin works 7 days a week.

He supports me and my three daughters, who he has taken on as his own, and sweats to provide for us.

We own a portable sawmill and this last year by the grit of our teeth he has kept us going.

He wakes up gets the girls ready for school, feeds them, drives them to school (45 minutes one way). Then goes to work, picks them up from school, makes dinner and does homework with them and is usually snoring by the time the house winds down.

He is amazing and never takes a day off.

Jeff Rainbolt

 

I would like to nominate my husband Jeff Rainbolt.

He works tirelessly as a caregiver for developmentally disabled adults to make sure our family wants for nothing.

He comes home after work and immediately starts on chores around our property without complaint. Even after all that work he still finds the time to be there whenever our boys want some daddy time.

He goes out of his way to help anyone friend or stranger, it doesn’t matter.

He is by far the hardest working man I have ever met with the biggest heart there ever was.

We are beyond blessed to call him ours.

Martin Sanchez

 

I would like to nominate my dad Martin Sanchez, a child of the Mother Lode, born and raised in Moccasin and Sonora.

My father is the hardest working man I know.

He has retired from San Francisco Hetch Hetchy water and power after 32 plus years. Now he runs his water tender truck business, so he was gone all this last summer working to help fight fires.

He works hard day after day a day, has raised 4 daughters and 1 son and now helps with his many grandchildren. Martin is also a loving husband to his wife Tina.

And on his down time since retirement, he has been rebuilding and remodeling his dream 1970 Chevelle that he has had since he was 21.

He always is willing with open arms to help others. Anyone that knows Martin knows what a hard working and loving person he is!

Leroy Silva

Leroy is such an amazing person!

He came into mine and my kid’s life when life was not so easy to navigate. He was able to see through my broken pieces and take the time and effort to build me up. Not only is he amazingly supportive of me mentally and physically, but he also works hard every day.

Whether he is sick, or the weather is harsh he is out there doing what he needs to do. He has taken on the responsibility of a provider for me and my kids without even a second thought.

He made it a point to build an individual relationship with all 3 of my kids.

I am so truly blessed and thankful for him.

I hope he knows every day how much me and the kids appreciate everything he has done for our family!

Taylor Gonsalves

My best friend, husband, father of our fur babies and biggest supporter.

Even though we’ve been married for only 5 years, we have been through a lot. I have never met a more patient and hard working soul. I have been diagnosed with severe anxiety, depression and some others. Since the beginning of our courtship he has been by my side giving full support. He knew what I came with and still chose to be with me.

6 months into our relationship his father, whom was struggling with Leukemia for a while, his fight ended. It was a very hard year for his family. I never left his or his family’s side.

Even then he still showed up to work and never complained. That’s one thing about him I can’t get over, he never complains. I know my mental health is a lot to deal with at times and he’s seen me at my worst a lot..and it’s not easy for him but, he always stays calm, selfless, patient, has never raised his voice and is very protective of me. He never complains. Even after a 12hour shift of working in 105 degrees factory, working his butt off, getting a 3rd degree burn from work, getting hurt at work constantly, and to come home to me when I’m depressed or haven’t done much, he doesn’t complain.

Sometimes he surprises me with flowers or gets dinner for us so I don’t have to cook. Even saying yes to a third fur baby! And then this year, for our 5th anniversary he surprised me with a trip to Hawaii! Even though he’s the one that works his butt off he kept asking the whole time, what I wanted to do.

I always make sure that he knows how much I appreciate his hard work for our family. For me and him. Our fur babies. For providing our beautiful home. A beautiful marriage. A safe place. My safe haven. My home.

I don’t know what this life would be like without him. And I can guarantee you, he is one of the hardest working men at his job. Everyone else is always calling in, using covid time, only twice has he called in this past year and it was for me. To be with me because I couldn’t be left alone. To take care of me.

His dad would be beyond proud of the man he has become. The husband, the son, the brother and the dog dad he has become!

I wish he were here to see him now.

That’s why I think my man deserves this!

He’s the MOST HARDWORKING MAN in my life! – a lucky and proud wife
