John works full time as a Line Cook at “The Grill” in Pine Mountain Lake. In addition he runs his own local Property Maintenance business as well as picking up other odd jobs wherever he can. He works everyday from sun up to sun down. He’s an amazingly hard worker and a wonderful, loving father and husband. He works so hard to provide a good life and instill a strong work ethic and family value for our 2 1/2 yr old son Timber. To give our son a life neither of us had growing up as well as provide me with the opportunity to be a stay at home mommy. He does everything for our family and for that I am extremely proud and so grateful.
I believe he deserves this award and recognition for all the hard work he does and for him to know that it doesn’t go unnoticed.
Hi, my name is Rick and I have a nomination for hardest working man. The man I want to recoginize is not my man but has been my good friend for almost thirty years, he is a father of three boys that are 22,7 and 2 years old. He has also been married to the same woman going on 24 years. I consider myself a hard working man but don’t come close to how hard my friend Jeff Ecroyd of Sonora works. Jeff works full time for Moyle construction as a truck driver, heavy equipment operator and is the shops mechanic. He is not the guy who sits in his truck or stays on the backhoe, if a guy needs help in a ditch he’s the first to jump in and grab a shovel or an asphalt rake and get the job done. Jeff always works 10 hour plus days for Moyle 5 days a week and has for years but if that’s not enough, Jeffs second job is the maintenance man for his wife Denise’s preschool in sonora which as a historic building always needs some repair or upgrades that are all done by him after work and on many weekends. When Jeff does make it home he has all of his household chores to take care of, all the yard work, maintenance, tending the garden ect. It doesn’t end there, in the last 20 Years that I have been visiting Jeff at his home he always has a friends or relatives car or truck or motorcycle in the driveway that he repairs for them usually with little thanks or compensation, Jeff is also the guy that helps move his friends or family and also works on their homes and his neighbors homes. I don’t know when he sleeps! Even with all this I can’t count how many times I have stopped by late in the evening Jeff still in his work clothes and he is cooking dinner for the family because his wife is stuck at the school waiting on parents who are late picking up kids. The most amazing part about all of this is that Jeff is almost always happy and in a good mood. I couldn’t have more respect for Jeff and how he conducts his life he is truly a selfless person and by far the hardest working man I know!
I nominate James St. Clair for work man of the week. James works for Foothill Sanitary as a maintenance man. James gives an 100% in everything he does, and he always has a smile on his face. James is always there to lend a helping hand to his family, friends, and neighbors by moving, working on their cars and house repairs. James also has two kids Kaileen 9 and Luke 4, he loves being a dad. James participates in all there sports activities and school functions. James runs a group called the Redneck Wheelerz which does car wash and spaghetti dinners for charity for the Wounded Warriors. James is a good respectful guy with a big heart, and that’s why I think he should get this award.
I want to nominate my husband Brett Walker, he is one of the hardest working men I know. He works full time for his family business while helping to run it as well, while his Dad(the owner) is going out for medical reasons. After he is done at work he is always helping our families with their projects around there house. Not to mention when he is at home he is always fixing up our house and spending time with our two children. He is always making sure to make time for our two kids and being a great father. I don’t know how he manages it all. He is an amazing man and a very hard worker and that is why he deserves to be a winner of the hard working man contest. Thank you
