    Dakota Serva
    Dakota is 24 years old and he works his buns off to support myself and our 8 month old daughter. He works his normal job Monday through Friday then gets off work and goes to side jobs. If he is not working hard to make a dime, He is volunteering his services to those in need doing things like repairing roofs, and helping neighbors build fences. There are traces of his handiwork in at least three surrounding towns!  He deserves recognition for all of his accomplishments as the most hard working man I know and for his heart of gold!

    I would like to nominate our good friend,Byron Maxon as the hardest working man around.  Byron worked many years as a Diesel mechanic, last with Henley’s in Groveland.  But that isn’t what makes him stand out.  His love and devotion for his wife,Shirley of 38 years,and his sons,Clinton and Clee. No matter what Byron himself may need or want his Family and friends always come first. He cooks,cleans,does laundry,shopping and grandchild chauffeur ing. Day or night, 365 a year,he is always doing for others, myself included. He is the definition of a “Hard working man”.

    My name is Shy Anne walker and I’d like to nominate my boyfriend, Nick Durney, as the hard working man of the week.
    This man goes to work Monday through Friday as a roofers laborer, and drives his jeep with no top every morning. Yes, that’s my loving boyfriend. He’s up when the sun comes up and is home before i go to work at night and still does a lot of stuff around the house. On top of work and house work, nick helps everyone else before he thinks of himself.
    I couldn’t think of a better candidate for a hard working man of the week. And I couldn’t think of a better man to be with!

    Justin Lassor is my fiance and the loving Father of our two children Lucas and Hailey. The kids and I were driving listening to KKBN when they were talking about the Hard Working Man contest, and my son who is 4, said “Mommy, Daddy is the hardest working man I know and I want him to win this contest!” So I asked him why daddy is so hard working and he said “because he goes to work every day, and he plays with me, and he helps me work on my trucks and he lets me help him work on his truck, and he is just the best daddy ever!” with a big smile on his face. Then I asked our daughter who is 2, if she agrees with brother and she said “yes”.  I couldn’t agree with our son more. Justin does anything that he can to make sure our family is well taken care of and deserves this award more than anything. We love you babe!!

    Gary Goodrich
    I would like to nominate my step dad, Gary Goodrich because i feel he best fits a hard working man,not only has he stepped up to the plate on raising me and my sister, but he comes home after a long day of work and continues to fix,clean and/or does what needs to be done till the sun goes down with no hands down just gets the jobs done! Were also very lucky to have him still here in our lives considering in 2013 he underwent an 8 way heart bypass, that nearly could have killed him, and he still managed to pull through quite a surgery that made us all quite so proud he fought so hard to still be here with us, he had quite a long rough road to recover and is still here being the hard working man that he is!  As the amazing dad he is still maintains and keeps up all the hard work in our home and outside of work/home. Hes an amazing fun loving grandpa to two boys Kyle and Logan a loving husband and father i wouldn’t trade him for anything in this world! We love u Gary (dad) and Grandpa!  Thanks for being the strong fighting hard working man you are and have became!

He is truly an amazing man who deserves the utmost recognition and admiration.

He drives 3 hours a day to and from work and puts in his 8 hours (sometimes more) to make sure his family is well taken care of.

Even after all that he finds quality time to spend with us. I am a very lucky woman to have found such a great guy. He truly deserves to be accepted as the hard working man.

    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!!

    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.

    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!

    Kele LaNier

    I would like to nominate my husband Kele. He is an amazing man, husband, friend and uncle.He works many hours, sometimes 12 hour days, at Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) as the swing shift stacker operator, and than comes home and works on our home remodel and takes care of our 33 animal small ranch. He’s kind, patient and loving to anyone he meets and will always put others first. I couldn’t have asked for a better man to spend the rest of my life with.
