Rodger Allen Whited


Rodger Allen Whited, 61, of Norman passed away December 27, 2018 with family by his side. He was born December 2, 1957, in Shawnee, Oklahoma to Boyd Vernon and Daisy (Wolf) Whited.
An avid outdoorsman, Rodger enjoyed hunting, fishing, and early mornings at the gun range where he could put his gun collection to good use. He was a history buff and enjoyed collecting coins, a hobby passed on to him from his father. He also loved sharing his vinyl records with anyone that would listen.

Rodger was a member of the Oklahoma Society of Land Surveyors and the National Society of Professional Surveyors.
Those left to cherish his memory are his wife: Diana Whited of Norman; children: Amos Vann and wife, Michelle of Shawnee and their children: Bailey Watts, Brooklyn Vann and Faith Vann; Adam Vann and wife, Michelle of Norman and their children: Hank and Lars Vann; Amber Embrey and husband Bo of Yukon and their children: Cole, Madison, Cale and Cara Embrey; and Angela Ganote and husband, Kyle of Yukon and their child, Alec Ganote; and siblings: Janet Nichols, Edith Batt, Janie Bland, Kristeena Carter, Clinton Whited and Alfred Whited.
