    Brad Luke
    My hard working man is Brad Allen Luke. This beautiful soul never skips a beat, and I could not be more proud to call him mine. He goes to work before the sun rises, and puts his 12 to 16 hours without ever complaining. No matter how brutal the outside heat is during work or how distracting the cold rain, he comes home to all 5 of his kids and still makes time for them. I hear him chatting with my oldest boy about his day at school, bursting in laughter as he listens to our daughters’ gross/funny experiences of the day. His green eyes light up with joy as he studies our newborn son. Whether it’s helping the kids subtract double-digits for math homework, helping me cook spaghetti dinner for the third night, or brushing our daughters’ hair before bed-he is always there.

    In the midst of life’s craziness, he still finds time and energy for just the two of us. I love this man more than life itself- with him life is truly beautiful.  Love you Babe, THANK YOU for everything you do for us!!

    Bill Baughn and our daughter Rylie

    Bill Baughn
    Bill works 40+ hours a week at his regular job as an electrician AND he does tons of extra work around our home, updating and making it ours. He spends his free time with our 2 kids Trevor 13 who loves his computers and video games, and Rylie 12 who is involved with as many activities as she can be basketball, cross country, Girl Scouts, etc. Bill takes them to and from activities as well as helps them practice.  He also helps extended family members frequently with odd jobs around their homes since he is the “handy man” of the family. Not only all of that but he is the very best husband and friend to me. He truly is MY HARD WORKING MAN

    MAYSON BOYD

    I would like to nominate my boyfriend Mayson Boyd for the hard working man. He works 40+ hours a week at waste management to come home and help me with everything around the house. He is always so willing to help me with the house work even after a long days work. He’s 20 years old, started with waste management straight out of high school. He moved up here from Fresno to work, and we now own our own house. He will do anything possible to provide for me, and our baby due in November. He’s so supportive, loving, and just an all around hard working man.

    My hard working man, Kevin Callahan amazes me each day. My fireman, has been gone for three full months fighting fires. This fire season has yet to end. He continues to amaze me by his hard work put in on these long hot days. Doing so without complaints and not being home for days, even months. He continues to power through with no current release date to come home. I thank god for him, and all that he does for our community. While away he always makes sure I’m taking care of and our time spent together is so much more special.

    Jeff Brown

    Why should my husband be the hard working man of the week? Because he’s the hardest working man I’ve met in my entire life. He’s gone by 5 am and lucky if he’s home by 5 pm. And with the little time he has after work, he still finds a way to split firewood, work on household projects, and still finds time to make our daughter and I feel more loved than any other girls on the entire planet. He is strong, kind, and his handsome smile doesn’t hurt either. He loves to fish and explore, but always makes sure we’re right by his side when he does. I can’t tell you what he works harder on, his job, our marriage, or parenting our little one. He puts his full effort into all of it. He either does it with all he has, or he doesn’t do it all, and I haven’t seen him not step up to the plate once. That’s what makes him not only a hard working man, but a truly amazing husband and father.

He is always helping others in need and working to provide for our family, he is truly amazing and I am so thankful to have him in our lives.

    Matt Greenlee
    I think Matt should be nominated for The Hard Working Man because that is exactly what he is. He never hesitates to stop on the side of the road to help anyone and everyone with a flat, or car troubles. When we arrived home after spending 3.5 years in El Paso while he served in the U.S Army, he started his new job at New Melones Lake Marina, and he never hesitates to work overtime. He never stops what he is doing just because he’s off the clock. He shows up early, he stays late. On the weekends, he’s working on our yard or lending a helping hand to a friend. And after it all, he still comes home in a great mood and so eager to hangout with his family and spend as much time as he can with our nephew Maverick. I’ve never met someone like this guy, truly an inspiration to many including myself.

    My husband bill is the ultimate hardworking man! He is an amazing father to our 3 sons (Mac, Dane and Liam) a great husband and a devoted and loyal friend.  He worked tirelessly as the operator foreman for the Butte Fire Debris removal project and is now the manager of Carson Hill Rock.  When he’s not working, going to little league games or 4h meetings for the kids he’s out teaching our boys how to be hardworking Cowboys while managing our herd of cattle. While he loves what he does professionally he truly believes that making our 3 boys into good hard working men is his most important job of all!

Then he has practice for his tug-of-war teams competing at the Tuolumne Lumber Jubilee.  On his days off he doesn’t mind watching the kids while his wife and I go shopping and he never complains about doing chores for me on the weekends either.  I feel very blessed to have Troy as my son-in-law.

    I want to nominate my husband, Dennis “Buzz” Kittredge.  Before retiring, Buzz would work full time plus many hours of overtime, and also had several side businesses he developed over the years.  All this hard work enabled us to move to Sonora and build our dream house.  Buzz still out works many men who are younger than him and brings laughter into our life every day.  His daughter, Susie and I are so proud of him for all he’s done.

    Zachary Rose
    I want to nominate my husband Zachary for the hardworking man contest because he goes above and beyond to provide for our family. Zachary works in organ donation and contributes to saving a life every day that he works. He works 12 1/2 hours shifts and commutes 3+ hours a day from Oakdale to the Bay Area. He is the sole provider of our home and although he has to sacrifice so much time with our family, he has given me the opportunity to raise our children and to finish my education. He never complains and although I know he’s exhausted on his days off, he is up bright and early with our children, soaking up every moment he can with them. Our children Caleb 4, Aria 2, and Allison 9 weeks, light up when he walks into the room. We are so blessed to have such a hard working man in our lives and he deserves to be recognized for all that he does today and every day.

    Matthew Conley
    I would like my dad Matthew Conley to be nominated because he has always done whatever it took to provide for his family,still even now working 2 jobs,6 days a week,sometimes 15 hour days. He started working at Heron Doors when he was 20 and worked his way up to shop foreman for 17 yrs.till they closed doors. At that time he went to school and got his trucking license so that he could work,and is still employed with a great company in town called Eldorado Septic, He not only drives the dump truck,there are many long days hes digging in dirt with a shovel for hours,not to mention all the nights and weekends hes called into work for someones septic emergency and he does it without hesitation or complaining. Its not a fun job he does for a living and im sure this was not what he thought he would be doing for work at his age 50,but he does it with style, grace,and a happy face, That man has showed me the meaning of how important it is to have good work ethics,and how to give 100% in doing that job, no matter what job it is,do it right! He went without many of times  over the years,but made sure our mother and us 5 kids never did,and is still working hard to do what it takes…

    Butch Bray
    Hard working is one of the first things that comes to mind when thinking of my dad. In a world where people seem to always find the easy way out, my dad consistently works hard to do things the right way…even if it may be more difficult.

    He has been a logger as long as I can remember. This means that all my life he has been up before the sun and comes back home just before dusk where he then puts time in sharpening his chains and ensuring his equipment is ready for the next day. His dedication to the job goes way beyond the borders of the woods.

    We all know that logging is one of the most dangerous professions and as a result my dad has lost friends and co-workers over the years, yet at 67 he still puts in the blood and sweat on a daily basis to provide for his family. Even when his body may ache you can see the satisfaction on his dirty face knowing that he earned his paycheck.

    Even before logging, my dad worked hard to support his young family as a professional bronc rider where his highest ranking was 5th in the world. I guess you could say that he has always had a thing for dangerous hard work!

    When he isn’t out in the woods, watching the PBR, or playing with his dog RIP, my dad chooses to spend his time out on the water bass fishing. A long time ago he even turned that into hard work as he competes on the local bass fishing team tournament circuits where he placed first as recently as February.

    In a nutshell, my dad is the greatest example of what it means to work hard and earn what you have while cracking jokes along the way. I am blessed to have been able to grow up making memories with him from the truck rides on the logging roads to the boat rides on the lake. Thanks “Frog Breath” for all that you do and all that you are!

    Joshua Newton
    My husband works as a paint tech at a collision center in Eldorado Hills CA. We live in Arnold CA. He commutes 3 hours sometimes more to and from work every day to support our family of 4. We are so lucky to have such a dedicated man to take care of us. I know that any and everyone at work would agree that he is the hardest worker. They call him “work hawk”, because he always goes to see if the body men are finished so he can paint. Josh is the most deserving and humble person I’ve ever had in my life. He deserves it all.

    Fred Killion Sr.
    Fred will be 86 years old this year. He served 20 years flying in the Air force protecting his country, saving money to purchase his land in Sonora. There he served as a peace officer Dept of Correnctions for another 20 years. What makes my Dad exceptional is the work he did in the community. He served as the sole adviser for the Tuolumne County Jr. Riders when the esteemed Joe Stafford could no longer continue the heritage, helping children of all ages with their horsemanship. Fred was a adviser, and a founding member of the Twain Harte Horsemen, where he led parades, stored and hauled equipment to rides and functions, lobbied to ensure Eagle Meadow became a HORSE camp along with 4 others horse camps in the area, and led rides in those mountains for all to enjoy. He also orchestrated and constructed monuments in some of those horse camps, as he can build almost anything. When he broke his back, showing horse trails to new trail bosses it ended his horse back riding. Today, with such a strong moral compass, and keen business sense, he still advises community members when asked. He cuts and splits fire wood, clears snow from his driveway as well as many neighbors, and still finds time for feeding and checking on his cows. Boasting he has retired twice, someday he will do that again. As many in the State can attest to, they don’t come  harder working, whether lobbying Washington D.C. for truth and justice for horsemen everywhere, or working the ranch. He is an amazing man I’m proud to call Dad.
    A fact many horsemen don’t know–at one time, there was legislature going to be passed to keep horses out of the back country. Fred Killion stopped that non-sense, with the help of Washington D.C., and went the extra mile to ensure the Horse Camps were put on the Congressional Maps to keep them safe.

    Henry Barnett:
    My loving husband Henry is well known for his amazing smile, laid back style and personality. We’ve been married 15 years and have 3 children together Bethany-16, Izak (Isaac)-13, and Preston- 10. Henry has worked as a Dialysis Technician for 20 years and is well liked by the staff and patients he works with. Even though he’s tired after working a 12 hour shift, Henry will come home and help prepare dinner and catch up on scouting goals with our boys. On his days off, he helps get our children to and from their sporting events, school activities and take or pick them up from friends houses. If he isn’t doing those things, he’s working on home improvement projects and recently put in a brand new wood floor throughout most of the house. Without his support and hard work, I wouldn’t have been able to go back to school to take classes required for my new position at work this year. Our children and I want him to know how much we appreciate  the hard work he does and respect the father and husband that he is. We love you “Hankster”

    I would like to nominate my dad John Knigge for the hard working man. 4 years ago he suffered a blood clot that almost killed him, he since then retired from his job at the local prison and started working part time at Lowe’s. He’s always been there for both my sisters and I, our children and if course or mother. He is one of the hardest working people I know, working rain or shine, helping everyone he meets. I want him to know how much he means to us and he should be proud of himself pushing through a life threatening illness.

    Wes Fredrickson
    I would like to nominate my dad, Wes Fredrickson, for this weeks hard working man. My dad is an amazing father of three, husband, friend, and role model. My dad is the type of person to give the shirt off his back to anyone in need. He believes if you do good for other people and help them out, the good will come back around to him. My dad is always helping out others and would be there in a heartbeat if anybody needs anything. He works as a Firefighter at San Ramon Valley Fire Department. While he is not risking his life to save others, he is at home providing for his family of 5, working on anything that needs to be done for our family and others, and managing Fredrickson Farms. My dad is a wonderful person who I look up to everyday. He deserves this award because he is the Hardest Working Man I know!!

    Hello
    This is my husband Scott. He is a Battalion Chief in Salinas. The picture of him in action was the big Dick Bruen Store fire. He, with the help of many awesome firefighters, saved the downtown from burning up! He commutes 3 hrs two times a week to support his family. He is a great husband, dad and PAPA. We made three awesome kids together and have 1.5 grand babies and he is amazing to all of us! If he isn’t putting out “fires” in Salinas he is home working on something or at one of the kids houses helping them. We all love and appreciate him sooo much!

    As a husband and a father, John gives it his all 100%!!  He has his own business, Fenger Painting, manages 3 employees, makes time to exercise his horses and dogs, makes time for his own exercise, cooks, fixes and repairs things that need to be fixed, makes time for our daughters and their friends, and also still makes time for me!:)  We have been together for over 30 years, married for 25 and have had many changes and through all of it, John has NEVER let me or our daughters down.  He has always picked up the pieces and moved us forward to another journey.  Life is never boring with this man. 🙂  HE IS MY HARD WORKING MAN!!!!

    My husband, James Angelo, is a very hard working man! He served our country for 10 years in the Navy. Jim supports his family everyday. He helps with homework, fundraising activities at school, sports and all of the other extra curricular activities our two daughters are involved with! Family comes first for him. He is the most deserving person I know for this honor!

    Ben Andrews
    My husband (of one month on February 25th!), Ben Andrews, absolutely deserves the title “Hard Working Man.” I don’t even know where to start. Not only does he work extremely hard at his full time job at Armstrong- Clark Company, he is also an outstanding husband and father. He does so much for us!
    We have been together for eight years and are raising 4 beautiful children together. When Ben and I first got together I had a one and four year old and he has been there for them as a father since day one. We also have two children together that are now five and three years old. Ben is such an involved, amazing dad. Wether it be dance lessons, sporting and school events, playing catch outside, shooting hoops with them, building skateboard ramps, showing them the coolest flip on the trampoline, watching their home fashion shows, giving guitar and snowboarding lessons, pony rides through the house, or “airplane” before bed, Ben is there, excited about it and encouraging. He is the best dad ever.
    In the cold winter months Ben is up extremely early building a fire so the house is comfortable when the rest of us get up. The kids and I wake up to a warm house with coffee brewed and, often breakfast made! And my favorite coffee mug? Always washed and ready for me to use. It’s the little things and Ben pays attention to every detail. Did I mention that he makes dinner for us every night? I must add that he makes the absolute best burgers I have ever had!
    Ben knows how loved and appreciated he is but I would love to give him the recognition he deserves. He doesn’t need much in this life to be happy. He is a grateful, generous, loving, optimistic, compassionate human being. He has taught me so much. Ben is incomparable.

    My man, Monte would work eight days a week if he could. He loves me the same. He suffers from very painful arthritis, but you would never
    know. He never complains, just does what has to be done on the ranch and other ranches in the area. When duty calls, it could be anything….his work prevents your animal road hazards around here anyway!
    I just want him to know how much his hard work is appreciated. Coming home to me and a nice meal feels minuscule, but it’s the best part of the day for me. I tried to set a fence post…laughable is an understatement. There are so many angles to conquer in the ranch life and there is nothing he can’t or won’t do. It’s a beautiful life with him in mine.

    I would like to nominate my husband, Bill Curnow as the hard working man simply because that is what he is! He works countless hours at his job to support his family and then comes home to help me with our three very active, beautiful children! He helps me cook, clean, make lunches, gives baths and anything else he can to help.  Myself and my children are very lucky to have him and believe that he deserves this and sooo much more for what he does! Thank You so much!

    Bill Meyers
    My brother Bill is and always has been the hardest working man I know. he has held the same position at his job for well over 25 years(that in itself speaks volumes) stays late for the customers goes on road calls that I wish he wouldn’t just to keep people on the road. family is always first with him. his wife has been disabled for some time now and he continues to care for her and work hard around the house to be sure she is comfortable when he has to be away.  Our niece was affected by the butte fire last year and he opened his home to her family while the evacuation was in effect.   I recently had some health issues and he has continued to stay up on the latest treatment to keep me informed of my options.   I have listened to your station from the valley and enjoy stories of the hard working men shared by other listeners.   I do not know why I have waited so long to nominate my brother but I do hope you choose him to let him know how much I appreciate him as well as look up to !
    him for strength as we lost our mother what will be 7 years ago this august and with him I have not felt alone in this life.  I love you brother

    My husband of 29 years never ceases to amaze me. We have 3 children and 2 grandchildren and he absolutely does whatever he can to help them. Today is Father’s Day and I recently had surgery and when I should be doting on him he has been doing everything for me and rebuilding our deck at the same time. He works so hard to take care of his famiky and make the hard decisions that are sometimes needed to be made. I don’t know anything this man can’t do. Please choose this hard working man for your contest because he truly deserves it. His name is Chris Tuggle.
    From his wife and kids,
    Jaime, Emily, Scott, John, Erika, Sean, Andrew Tuggle

    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!
