This can be done is 3 quick steps:

  1. Edit sudoers file: sudo nano /etc/sudoers
  2. Find a line which contains includedir /etc/sudoers.d
  3. Below that line add: username ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL , where username is your passwordless sudo username; Save your changes.

You're done. From now on, your user will be able to execute sudo any_command without providing a sudo password.
