Tanner was born in Minneapolis on January 13, 1997 to parents Todd and Jean (McGuire) Groninga. He moved north in 2004 with his family and eventually ended up in Mora for middle school. Through a mutual friend he asked the love of his life, Miranda, to their senior prom. Then on June 17, 2017 Tanner and Miranda Zimmer married and they spent 2 1/2 happy years together.
Tanner enjoyed 4-H and hockey throughout high school. He also enjoyed 4-wheeling and snowmobiling with his wife, family and friends whether it was local trails or trips to the UP of Michigan. Tanner enjoyed being a heavy equipment operator for Kanabec County and also loved working on the farm with his father-in-law. Tanner started out farming loving yellow and green, but soon found joy in operating red! Whenever Bob would start a tractor, Tanner would come running. He will forever be missed & loved!
