Mike Bradford, company driver
Nominated by Jen Horton, daughter
I love my trucker because he’s always there for me, whether he’s on the road or not. He would take my sister and me along with him when we were little (during school vacation breaks especially) to see as much of the country as we could. We saw teepees, famous lakes and many other fascinating places. I can only imagine how hard it was for him to be away from the family while he was working hard, but I learned many valuable lessons from him. His work ethic and always positive attitude are attributes that I strived to match in my adult life that have led me to be successful. I can never repay all the wonderful things he’s done for our family — even when we were bratty teenagers — he was always there providing an example of what we should be like. I couldn’t have done it without him, he’s the best truck driver I know!
