Officer Eric Groebner died suddenly at his home on Wednesday, September 14, 2022. He was 39.
“If you ever met Officer Groebner, you would immediately know you had a lifelong friend. He was truly the best of us. A Father, Husband, Son, Brother, Friend and an exceptional Police Officer. He was loved by all and will be greatly missed,” Anoka Police Department said in a statement.
“Today there is a hole in our hearts but we know that we are better for knowing him, better for loving him, better for having met him. May he be as blessed in the next life, as we were in this one by knowing him. May we all strive to be the Police Officer like Officer Groebner. A fair, kind, thoughtful and caring man.
