Alexis Hein-Nutz will be honored before her funeral with a procession that will run from Greeley to Loveland, where the funeral is taking place, according to a Facebook post from the Weld County Sheriff’s Office. Her family will be escorted to Foundations Church in Loveland from Greeley in a “multi-agency law enforcement procession.” This will include several deputies and professional staff members who will ride their motorcycle in her honor.
The procession will leave the Weld County Jail, 210 O St. in Greeley at 8:45 a.m. and take the following route

•South on North Denver Avenue to East 13th Street.

The Sheriff’s Office has welcomed the public to line portions of the procession route if they would like to pay their respects to Hein-Nutz.
“We’d like to thank the community for their continued support during this tragedy and for respecting the family’s privacy,” the post included.
Hein-Nutz’s funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday. The service will not be open to the public, but will be livestreamed on the Foundations Church website, foundationschurch.org. Following her funeral, Hein-Nutz’s remains will be taken to her hometown of Bismarck, North Dakota, for a private family burial.
Hein-Nutz was killed in a hit and run crash in Greeley the evening of Sept. 18. According to previous reporting from the Greeley Tribune, the crash occurred just north of Greeley near AA Street and 37th Avenue when Octavio Garcia-Gonzales, driving a white van, allegedly hit Hein-Nutz on a motorcycle while she was on her way to work around 5:30 p.m. Sheriff’s office deputies responded to the scene, but the driver fled on foot into a nearby cornfield.
Garcia-Gonzales has since been arrested and faces charges of careless driving resulting in death and leaving the scene of a crash involving death.
Hein-Nutz, who was just over a week away from her 26th birthday when she was killed, attended Loveland High School, where she played basketball and served as a leader for her JROTC Raiders, according to her obituary; that team is expected to be inducted into the Loveland High School Hall of Fame Friday.
Her dream, according to the obituary, was to “always be able to help others and become a peace officer.” This dream came true when she was 21 and she was hired as a deputy sheriff for the Weld County Sheriff’s Office, the post included.
Outside of her time as a deputy, Hen-Nutz loved riding her motorcycle, spending time with family and her “fur babies,” reading, watching movies and archery, according to the obituary.
