Nick passed on September 20, 2021 surrounded by his family. He was born July 20, 1980 to Rudy Van and Betty C. Cramer Pinkard. He served two tours of overseas duty, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom 3. Nick proudly served as an Army medic and his fellow soldiers nicknamed him “Doc.”  He carried the values and experiences from his military career throughout his life.  He loved outdoors and considered himself a survivalist.  He was an entrepreneur who created his own company, Whiskey Brothers, alongside one of his brothers.  Above all else, Nick loved his family.
