Nicholas Scott Krug

April 2, 1992March 21, 2021

Nicholas Scott Krug, age 28, of Champlin passed away unexpectedly at home. He took an angel’s hand and went to heaven on Sunday, March 21, 2021.

Nicholas, also known as Nickybear, Furr, Nicky, and Nick, was born April 2, 1992 in Coon Rapids, MN.

He was a beloved son of his dad Randy Krug, and mom, Laura Krug; brothers, Randall Krug II and Michael Pontius (nephew, Preston, and niece, Ella).

Nick was a gentle soul known for his Heart of Gold, Infectious Laugh, and Unfailing Faith in our Lord Jesus. He always considered others’ feelings and was there to encourage and help, often before being asked.

He loved hiking, running, working out, music, concerts, and serving others. He was a 6-time participant in the Tough Mudder to raise funds for disabled vets, a Grandma’s Marathon completer, ran in multiple fund raisers for nonprofit organizations and participated in many mission trips. He was a loyal Red Cross Blood Donor and also an organ donor. He grew his hair and donated it in memory of a friend who passed of ovarian cancer.

Nicholas was a High School Homeschool Graduate. Nicholas graduated with honors from Anoka Ramsey Community College with an AA Degree, Northwestern University with an BA Degree and Bethel University with an MA in Psychology.

He is a beloved son, brother, and friend. He will be deeply missed by his dad Randy, Mom Laura, Brothers Randy and Michael, and Nephew Preston and Niece Ella, a multitude of friends, and Dutchess, our chocolate lab which he lovingly referred to as “the HOUND”. There will forever be a break in all of our hearts. He is now resting in the loving arms of his savior, Jesus and celebrating his new life with those he loved that preceded him in death.

Nicholas decided to give the gift of organ donation, and he has since helped at least three individuals with this gift. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared below for the Krug family.
