Dad and I still lean on each other. I can tell my dad anything and can always depend on getting good advice when I need it. He is 76 and still driving a truck.

Thank you for the opportunity for me to enter him into this contest because in my opinion, MY POPS IS THE TOPS!!!”

-Beverly Redmon of Cave City

He is a go getter and is so deserving of this. Me and my sister have the BEST role model in the world for our dad.”

-Stephanie Combs of Bowling Green


“I waited 35 years for a father worthy of the name “Dad”. My dad deserves to win this because there is absolutely nothing obligating him to the dad role to 3 grown children but he does anyway. He offers emotional support, guidance and advice and is unwavering in the love he shows for us. He has 3 grown children of his own as well. While it would be easy and understandable to exchange pleasantries and visit when it’s “required”, he makes sure we know, through his actions that he is there for us day and night. He and our mother were both leading professionals in their respective industries and both fell (individually) to the pressures of life and turned to substance abuse to cope. They met while on the road to recovery and have been wonderful for not only each other, but to all 6 of us kids and our children to be present, active, healthy and sober parents and grandparents. Our Dad deserves to win because he is exactly what a DAD should be: Dependable Admirable Dedicated”

-Lindsay Mcgehee of Russellville


“If it wasn’t for my pops i would never remember to change the oil in my car, change my air filter, or get my tires rotated.  Basically without my dad my car would blow up.  He’s also probably the kindest man you will ever meet with the biggest heart for people and animals alike.  I could only be so lucky to ever marry a man half as wonderful as my father.”

-Crystal Beams of Bowling Green


“My pops is great love golf and help other”

He does struggle to raise a washcloth to his face but he wants to do things himself. He was once a mountain of a man Kentucky farmer, and the only thing greater than his determination is his happy spirit. He is a joy and is kind and is a blessing to all that know him.

Working hard and never giving up on our dreams. He is selfless and caring, always going above and beyond to help anyone in need. In 1981 my dad joined the United States Army and retired Captain after 20 years of service. He continued to work for Ireland hospital in Fort Knox as a Physician’s Assistant. Providing healthcare for soldiers. In 2008 my dad suffered from a massive heart attack, unfortunately resulting in quadruple bypass surgery. He stayed in Jewish medical center for weeks recovering. He retired from his job and is focusing on his health and our family. I have two beautiful children who love their Papaw more than anything. They look up to him just as I do.

“My dad deserves the pops of the year award because well, he is Larry Hill. If you know my dad, you know he never meets a stranger, you know that he is always wearing a smile, and he is cracking some sort of “dad joke”. My dad deserves this award because has the heart of a servant. He chooses to demonstrate love and kindness through his actions such as volunteering with children’s ministry at church, helping those in need, and lifting peoples’ spirits with that goofy grin of his. He has shown me what kind of qualities to look for in a husband by the way he treats my mother and the people around him. I could not think of a more deserving person to receive this award other than my own “pops”.”

I think he deserves the best of anything.  He always is taking care of everyone else even at his age.  He is what I call old school, up early every morning, coffee and newspaper, he has all the dishes away, trash emptied sets up whatever my mom needs.  Dad also will take the neighbors trash cans and bins back for them, all three neighbor s. Not to mention walking with a cane and having MS (multiple sclerosis) Never once has any of that changed what he does.  He is always there for me whenever I need advice or if I’m working on something he always wants to help or give ideas.  Pops is just a great father and recently my 44 year old sister just got married dad was an amazing father to her and stood long hours during wedding day just to make her happy…. Ok in closing my dad is the kindness, smartest , loving , and most deserving father , I would be so grateful for him too win these gifts would be great Father’s day gift to reward up as well him and mom share there 50th wedding anniversary in Aug … Thank you for taking time to read about my top pops”

“My dad passed away 5 years ago, He was one in a million! I loved him with all my heart. It was so hard on my mother. She still cries often. Since then life has placed a sweet man in our lives. His name is Steve Garrity. He has been there when nobody else was. He gives and gives without expecting anything in return. I’m sure he doesn’t realize how much he means to mom and I. Mom is up in age and doesn’t drive but around home and my brother, her oldest son has been diagnosed with brain cancer(4th stage) along with being a diabetic with his left leg being amputated around 2 months ago. It’s hard to grasp all the heartache we’ve been through and still face but with God and his angel on earth Steve we make it through the hardest days. I wished the world consisted of men like Steve every where. I love him and appreciate all he does selflessly for my little family. I know you have so many stories to read but this is only a small amount of so much greatness Steve is. I wished you knew him. Heck, I wished everyone had a Steve in their life.”

-Becky Cline of Oakland


“I would like to nominate my grandfather/dad Ronnie Murray he deserves to win this for many reasons. The most important reason is when i was just an infant him and my grandmother took me in to raise as their own. He worked countless hours and multiple jobs to make sure i was taken care of. No matter what he has always been there for me in the good times and bad he has never turned his back on me. He goes above and beyond to help anyone and would give the shirt off his back if need be. I couldn’t be more grateful and blessed to have the best granddather/dad in the world. I love him so much. Till this day if my kids or myself needed anything he would drop what he was doing to make sure we were taking care of.. So yes he deserves the world and i would love for him to win this amazing package this would just be a small token of my appreciation he deserved so much more. If it wasn’t for this man who know where i would be at today. He brought me up in a Christian home and taught me to be the best woman i could be. Please my grandfather/dad deserves this help me show my appreciation to him.. Thank you.”

-Rhonda Sadler of Franklin

Hes a wonderful husband to my mom and i couldnt have asked God for a better Dad.”

-Tasha Cantrell of Portland


“My dad has always been the sacrificing type father. When my 4 siblings and I were kids my dad would work 2 or more jobs and would still make time for us. My dad would work 2 jobs in the summer, mow during the day and would still find time to make sure we always knew he loved us and found time to enjoy his family. He’s made sure my mom could stay home with all of us. He now works out of town so my mom can stay home. No matter how many mistakes we make, he’s always been there. When I left my ex-husband, my dad made sure that my 2 daughters and I had everything we needed when we completely started over in our apartment. My dads always put everyone else in front of himself. He’s 62 now and still works as if he’s 22. He’s usually working out of town, and misses holidays and birthdays. My dad is finally going to be home after quit a few years of being out of town for fathers day. I’m entering this contest because even though my dads never been in service, he’s always put others before himself. He’s been more of a daddy to me and my siblings. He’s been our hero. He has always went above and beyond, and has always been a father of gold. He use to loose his temper when he was doing something, and would always say some…selective words, but never meant any of it, and when we look back on it now he just laughs. He’s sacrificed so much of his time, money and health for us that this type of prize would be something he could enjoy. Something he could spend on himself. He’s done so much for others, and continues every day, I would just love to see the smile on his face to be able to enjoy himself. Something for him to have for himself, and he is a big sausage fan. Not gonna lie there. Thanks for your time of reading this.”

-Nicole West of Scottsville
