    Ted Carrillo
    Ted is a very hard working man. He is honest loving and very considerate of other people. He loves his coworkers like his family and that’s important for what he does. He recently lost a close friend and coworker in a tragic work related accident and still he goes to work everyday to make sure the job gets done. He is amazingly strong and even through this difficult time seems to do it with great perfection. Even with a hard day at work he comes home to his new family and does everything he can for us as well. We are lucky to have him in our lives and want to show him how much he love him and support him. We think he deserves to win this award. We hope we get a chance to show everyone what a strong and wonderful person he is.

    Hi KKBN,

    I would like to nominate my husband, Josiah Dewey, for the Hard Working Man contest.
    My husband first serves our community as a wildland firefighter.  He works out of Cherry Lake and Groveland, worked beyond exhaustion during the Rim Fire, and continues to work now falling trees, cleaning debri, and making the area safe for the public.  During this fire season, he is often away fighting fires, working both day and night shifts, putting his own life at danger at times, and making sure that people and property all over California are safe.  His hours are long, and his pay far below that of what he truly deserves.
    Josiah also serves a small part of this community by playing electric guitar at the Journey Church in Sonora.  He attends worship practice on Thursday nights, and also diligently practices music throughout the week, to assure the best possible worship and musical experience for the people there on Sunday.
    Despite his long hours and workload, he also takes the time to make sure I am prioritized and well taken care of. I teach at Summerville High School and find myself working from before sun-up to after sun-down.  He does little things like prepare meals for me when I cannot find the time, make sure the house stays clean, fixes my car, surprises me with blessings when I am stressed, and takes time out of his own busy schedule to write me personal notes of encouraging words, just to make sure the stress of my day is eased just a little.
    Amidst his crazy schedule, I have never heard Josiah whine or complain.  He shows true passion for life, for God, and for the people around him.
    Thanks!!
    Melyndee

    Marc Christie

    I would like to nominate my dad, Marc Christie, for the hard working man award. My dad is one of the hardest working people I know. Not only does he own and operate Custom Glass, but he drives a Summerville Elementary school bus, sits on the Soulsbyville Elementary school board, and volunteers with Sierra Bible Church mentoring the youth of our community. Not only does he work hard at all of his jobs, he truly cares about the kids and the people that he comes into contact with. There hasn’t been a time in the past 4 years when I have talked to him on the phone or come home from college and not heard a story of the kids on his bus. When he talks about those kids, you can tell how much he cares for each and every one of them. He treats each of the kids with kindness and respect, brings them treats for the holidays or when they earn student of the month, and is always willing to fill in for a field trip whenever necessary. I believe that my dad deserves this award not only beca!
    use he works hard in our community, but he strives to make it a better place to live.

    One of the greatest men I know is Doug Fields. He works hard for his kids including myself (Deanna) Justin Cody and Kaden. He works all week long hard long hours but still makes time to couch baseball and do things with his kids such as rock crawling cooking dinner or answering the phone for one of us kids when ever we need him. Not only is he raising Kaden the best he can but he is always willing to take his grandchildren Darci and William too. I look up to this man my father everyday. I don’t tell him enough how much I am proud of him and that he is doing a great job. This is my dad and I love him for doing the best he can with what he has.

    Jim Opie
    My Father is the hardest working man I know. He works all day everyday, 7 days a week and rarely takes a day off. This work ethic has been passed down from my grandfather to my father and now resides within my siblings and myself. He makes me want to be the best person that I can be. He is the most caring, and giving person I know. He is constantly on the go; He just goes and goes. Not only is he hardworking, but he has a great attitude, when most people would give up he is always positive. “For life is not easy but you are in charge of your happiness.” He instilled this belief into his children. When asked how he’s doing regardless of what kind of day he’s had his response is always “Awesome.” The women at the bank call him by “Mr. Awesome”. He says this with a huge smile on his face, whether is was good or not. Another famous quote by him is “just another day in paradise.” My dad has always been heavily involved within the community from being a youth s!
    occer coach, an Elk (past ER), Saint Mary’s Guild (Treasurer this year), to Chamber of Commerce Member to the Sheriffs Posse. This year he’s not only the Captain of the Sheriff’s posse, but he is again the Parade and Mother Lode Rodeo Dance Chairman. All of which starts this Saturday; and believe me, putting it all together has been a huge task! If that wasn’t enough, he helps take care of his significant other’s father who’s 98 when she’s at work. He clearly loves his community and helping others. Being a small town boy, he’s was brought up to lend a hand where ever you can.  He’s always there for not only his family, friends but our community; at a drop of a hat he will pitch in and help whenever he can. He’s not just  THE HARDEST WORKING MAN I KNOW, HE ALSO HAS THE BIGGEST HEART OF ANYONE I KNOW!

    Dan Tidball
    Reason why you think this person should be nominated for the KKBN Hard Working Man Award…Dan is the hardest working man. He is up before the sun, works hard all day and then comes home after dark. No matter how tired he is, he always makes time for our daughter Paisley. He is the most amazing and loving man. He took time off from being a power lineman to help take care of his younger brother that was paralyzed after a swimming accident over the summer. He moved home from Montana where he was working. He is now self-employed and does fencing contracts. He works so hard to provide for Paisley and I. I thank him everyday, but sometimes I’m not sure if he knows how much I truly mean it. I don’t know where I would be without him in my life. God truly broke the mold with this man. This is why I believe Dan deserves to be your next Hard Working Man of the Week.
    Sincerely,
    Kate

    John Reed


    This daddy of 2 deserves to be hard working man because he is willing to do give up everything thing he has just to give our girls the world. John is honest, kind, faithful and trustworthy. He works so hard and doesn’t get home till 3 o’clock in the morning and still gets up at 7 to drive our oldest to school, just so he doesn’t miss out on anything. Hands down best daddy in the world to our girls. John has also been my high school sweetheart going on 10 years and has given me the world on a silver Platter. John is devoted entirely to his family, fixes anything that needs it, from a boo boo to a changing my brakes. There is nothing that John can’t do. This super dad takes our oldest daughter shooting, teaches her survival skill, and now teaching her how to shoot a compound bow. something every little girl needs, is a daddy John Reed. He is my partner in crime, My best friend and my superman. And one day I will give him back the world on diamond platters.

    My husband is without a doubt the hardest working man there is. After years of self-employed construction and mechanical work, he had to have his right hand fused together because there was no cartilage left in it and it was full of arthritis from working it too much. It’s in a frozen position now, and he still is learning how to do things in other ways than he used to, isn’t stopping him from working-everyday still. Here is a picture of him after the surgery with a cast on it…working.  He has no disability and no vacation time to use.. I’ve seen him work sick. I’ve seen him work hurt. I’ve seen him work all day after being up all night working on equipment so that it could be used in his work the next day.  I’ve seen him work when there was a death. I’ve never seen him put in less than 6 days a week in 30 years. I’ve NEVER  seen him back down from a day’s work, ever.  If you want a hard-working man-this is your guy right here.  Here’s to you Glenn-I’ve seen it, I’ve lived it. You are by far the hardest working person I’ve ever seen. I love you and am SUPER  proud to be your wife.

    I think my husband Keith should win the hard working man contest because he is a small business owner who works so hard to support myself and our 3 kids.  He works all the time and he still manages to spend time with us no matter how little sleep he gets.  Me being a stay at home mom has always been important to him and he always makes sure he does what needs to be done to make that happen.  He makes me so proud everyday and he is a great husband, dad and my best friend.  He works so hard and it never seems to get any easier but he just keeps on. He deserves something nice for him and he deserves to be recognized for the hard working man he is.

    Robert Jones
    My Daddy is the hardest working man I know. He commutes every single day to French Camp from Sonora to his job as a diesel mechanic. There has never been a time that this man hasn’t worked his fingers to the bone to provide for his family. He currently supports my mom, me and my two kids and has a developmentally challenged son who lives on the property. He provides a home in Stockton where his other son lives. My dad was preparing to be off work from a hernia surgery last Dec but made time to actually rebuild/assemble a car I had bought in less than 30 days so I would have something to drive. He worked in the snow and up until 9:00pm Sunday night and had surgery at 7:00 am Monday morning. There isn’t anything he wont do for his kids and he doesn’t know the word no. I have never seen him turn anyone away that needed anything. He has the biggest heart and is the kindest soul that I have ever met. My dad deserves this award for all of his hard work and dedication and I would b!
    e honored if you could present him with this award. He never asks for help or for anything in return, My dad has some health issues that cause him discomfort in his joints and muscles and he never complains in his line of work I know I couldn’t do it. We all love him very much and thinks he is beyond deserving of this award. Thanks for listening.

    Andy Chase
    Of all the people I could think to nominate for the Hard Working Man, it would have to be my honey Andy Chase.  He is the most selfless person I know. Not only does he put in his full days work of construction and pest management everday, he still works hard after hours. For the past month he has been working tirelessly after work until dark, even with a work light on, and on weekends tearing out our old deck to put in a nice patio and trying to have it done for our daughters third birthday BBQ. He is always on call for friends and family to help with anything (from electrical, family car mechanic, advice on home repairs to helping working with his dad and brother on any projects they have going), always putting off what he may need to get done to help others. When my sisters car makes a funny noise, she calls him and he always make time to listen and diagnose :) And at the end of the day he always makes time to play with our daughter or read her a bed time book. He has the !
    biggest and most generous heart out there. I greatly appreciate your time for considering him and I think he well deserves the Hard Working Man award.

    Don Fulton

    I am proud to call Don my grandfather! About 7 years ago my grandfather was in a horrible car accident. He drove off Old Priest Grade and suffered major injuries and was hospitalized for many months. His stability was questionable, and we didn’t know what the outcome would be. A few long months later, we brought him home and not long after that he returned to the woods to work. His accident left him not able to walk like he use to and now has to use a cane to walk. He is now 80 years old, walks with a cane and still works long hours running his logging company, many mornings he gets up at sun rise and doesn’t stop until the sun goes down. Most people my age couldn’t keep up with this wonderful man. He is amazing and the hardest working man I have ever met. Grandpa you never stop amazing us, thank you for being such a wonderful role model. We all love you so very much! If anyone deserves this award it is you.

    Jon is a captain with Cal Fire in The Tuolumne Calaveras Unit, currently stationed out of San Andreas. When not working on the fire engine, he is equally busy working on his ranch, often with his three year old son in toe. Jon spends his days off fencing for his cattle, cutting fire wood, taking care of animals, and balancing the endless projects awaiting his attention.  He is a wonderful and patient dad to his three children. His three year old son who’s favorite thing to do is ride on the tractor with dad, is outside working with dad the majority of the time he is home. Jon works seven days a week, rarely making it inside before dark. Watching him strive to be an excellent employee, co-worker, and leader, work tirelessly to have a good home, and be a fun loving amazing dad, makes me proud to be married to the hardest working man I know.

    My dad has worked hard his whole life starting from a young age. He does whatever he can to provide a great life for me, my mom, and sisters. He earns everything he has and that inspired me to start working at the young age of 16 and I have held a steady job ever since, now i’m 23. He has taught me that you can do anything you set your mind to and to work hard and you will succeed. Thanks dad for everything, i love you.

    Jimmy Ashby
    My Father Jimmy Ashby has had to work hard his entire life. But I would like to nominate him for a the Hard Working Man Contest for mainly for helping his three children. In 2006 my older sister Kelli Ashby, was in a near fatal head on car collision. She was at Doctors Medical Center Neuro ICU for several weeks in a coma and then was transferred to San Jose for Rehabilitation after she had awoken. My father had to keep the family business, ASHBY CONSTRUCTION, going during this difficult year. My Sister has made a full recovery and since two years ago became a registered nurse in the ICU she was a patient at Doctors Medical Center. She would not be where she is today if it were not for his efforts with rehab and work. Last year Kelli bought a house and my father and I spent our time after work over there fixing the place up for her. As of two Weeks ago My eldest sister Tiffany and her fiance had bought a house and again my father is spending 12 hours days at the house fixing !
    it up while my sister is at school and her fiance works.

    Jimmy Ashby is the definition and model of a Hard Working Man. He deserves more praise than he receives.

    I would like my husband to be recognized for all his hard work. He works for a company called (CSI) Communications Services Incorporated. He works long hours and has little time off. But the time that he does have off is not really time off. He is kept busy by our two kids who are 3 and 4 years old.  They love their dad so much that when ever he is home all they want to do is play with dad all day. In my eyes his work is continuous from the job site to home. No matter how tired he gets hes never too tired to take the kids to the park or out for a bike ride. He provides for his family but also knows the  importance of spending quality time with us and thats why he is my hard working man.

    I am nominating my husband for hard working man because not only is he an amazing husband but an amazing father! He has always provided for us whether it is working or finding side jobs to provide for his family.  We are recovering drug addicts. He has 19 years of sobriety and I have 23 months. I had to quit working to go through a drug treatment program and he made sure that we had the income that we needed to maintain a home and food for our family. He has always been a provider.

    Hi, I would like to nominate my dad Eric Davis. He is 41 years old and he has four children to look after. They are Rachael, Sidnie, Bret, and Trevor. He also works for the county, and sometimes has to work 16 hour shifts. He just got married to Amber Davis.
    My dad is a loving, hard-working, providing man. He has, and always will be a great friend. He provides me, and my three siblings, and wife by, going out to get us wood for our fire place, cooking, making sure we have good grades, and that we have clothes and taking us to our various activities. 

    My dad gives us the things we need but also does fun stuff with us too. He takes us camping, shooting, to the park to play basketball, and soccer, and to play on the playground.  He gets us slurpies, and takes us out to dinner once in a while. He plays Legos with my brothers, Bret and Trevor, even though he may not want to. He plays outside on our trampoline with us, even though it may be freezing.
    My dad also works outside, he fixes up all of our cars, my grandmas jet-ski, his boat, and anything that needs to be fixed. He is very handy; I love to help him, especially when something needs a new part.
    My dad’s job is very hard. He does shift work. Right now he is working graveyard and sometimes has to work 16 hour shifts. He works through birthdays, holidays, and many other things. We know he does his best to get those things off but with his job it’s difficult.  

    This is why my dad should be The Hard Working Man of the Week.
    Thank you,
    Rachael Davis, and family

    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!!

     

    Thank you,

    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!!!
