Nicholas “Nick” Beard, 40, of Lakeland, FL, passed away on June 5th, 2022, after a brave battle with metastatic melanoma, skin cancer.
Nick was born May 2nd, 1982, in Lakeland, FL, graduating from Gause Academy in 2001. Nick went on to become a mechanic by profession for over 20 years. He held a passion for anything fast - two wheels or four. He loved God, Family, and Country and was not shy in supporting the second amendment. He was the jokester of the group, enjoying a good laugh even if it was at his own expense. He thoroughly enjoyed the good times and fought through the bad. He was the first to volunteer to help a friend or family.
Nick is survived by his parents, Sam and Janie Beard, brothers, Daniel and Mark Beard, and daughter Kaylee Beard.
