SFC Nicolaas Bouten

SFC Nick Bouten, 71, Attack 33, after a hard-fought battle he made his final call, fittingly, on Veteran’s Day.  His strength, courage and bravery, and also, his overabundance of stubbornness saw him through his ordeal. 

He leaves behind his children, Ray and Tina; his grandchildren, Samantha, Steven, Katelyn and Phoenyx; his brothers, Leo (Nicole) in Montreal and Ron (Diane) in Texas and many other family members.  He also leaves behind his Nashville Predators family, whom he dearly loved.  We will miss and love him eternally. 

A brief graveside service will be held at Kentucky Veteran's Cemetery West on Monday, November 28, 2022 at 11:00 A.M. There will be no services held at the funeral home prior.

Arrangements are under the care of Gateway Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 335 Franklin St. Clarksville, TN 37040. Phone: 931-919-2600. Online condolences may be made by visiting
