On June 15, the Blaine Community lost two of its finest members. Officer Steve Nanney and his wife Susie were killed in an off-duty motorcycle crash with another vehicle. OfficerNanney had been a dedicated servant to our Community for over ten years. Many of our youth knew him well as he was the School Resource Officer at Blaine High School for the last three years. He fulfilled this role with compassion and dedication and had a true impact with our youth. He had orchestrated the Arrive Alive Program this past school year at Blaine High School, educating our youth about the dangers of impaired and distracted driving. Susie was an Associate Professor at the University of Minnesota and was dedicated to the dietary health of children in promoting healthy lifestyles for hunger relief and school wellness. The Nanney’s gave extensively of themselves to various charitable organizations, including Special Olympics.
Prior to serving in Blaine, Steve was an Officer for the Ballwin, Missouri and Murray City, Utah Police Departments. Both Steve and Susie are originally from Missouri. Steve and Susie were well known in our Community as incredible gracious, kind, caring people. A tribute to their lives was held at Blaine High School on June 21st. They gave to various charities and strongly believed in the power of education. In a world so often filled with darkness, Officer Steve Nanney and Susie were a shining light, serving as an example ofwhich to live by.
