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’s love for the outdoors led him to his lifelong career as a surveyor and draftsman. Partnering with Tim Pollard in 1995, Rodger and Tim formed Pollard & Whited Surveying, Inc. Rodger was a member of the Oklahoma Society of Land Surveyors and the National Society of Professional Surveyors.
