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!
The reason he should be the hard working man of the week is because: he works so hard every day. He runs a welding and a horse shoeing busness as well as lots of volunteer work at the church that we go to. He takes very little time for him self, he works from dusk till dawn atleast 6 days aweek. I love him very much and all he wants in life is to make me (his wife) happy. If he had his way I would not be working but with the cost of living these days we both have to work. Please consider nominating Paul as the hard working man of the week.
Thank You so much,
Dearest Big Joe & Bridget, (first-on a side note I want to thank you for making every day a great day. I start my morning commute off with you guys Monday through Friday and I listen to you all morning and then I keep it on kkbn all day while I’m working in my pickup. You make me laugh and I just love you guys! So thank you thank you! I want to meet you two someday!) Ok here is the story of my hard workin’ man…. My husband is the hardest working man I know. His name is Scott Pope and we live in Oakdale. We recently became parents to a handsome baby boy and I can’t help but to hope that our boy turns out even half as great as his father. My husband has an absolute heart of gold. He is MAGNETIC. People who know him want to know more about him and people that don’t know him always find a way to meet him. He wakes up everyday looking to better himself, for his family, for his friends and even those he hasn’t met. He lives his life trying to make my life and our son’s the very best. He has overcome many obstacles through the years and yet he manages to get up every morning at 3 am to head to the gym to work out like a savage. He is the strongest man I’ve ever met-he always has spectators and “fans” watching his freakish strength in action. He is multidimensional; hardworking in everything he does- This man can can cuddle babies better than most mothers, he can dig up your entire septic system and fix the dang thing faster than any professional, he cooks some wicked good BBQ, he can diagnose and repair any vehicle issue, he cleans the house from floor to ceiling when I need help, he does laundry like a pro, he’s a gifted athlete, he is a wonderful woodworker and makes some very beautiful things, he drives me everywhere we go…it’s no joke, there’s nothing this man can’t do PERFECTLY. He works so hard at being the world’s best husband and father there’s no way I could let another week go by without him being recognized. There’s something to say about a man who makes it a point to crack his wife up with laughter SO HARD she cries…ALMOST DAILY! He makes my life the best life, every minute of everyday. I want to thank him for everything he does for myself, our son, our friends and family. He is my hardworking hero and my soulmate:)
