Allen Skip Whitman

Allen Russell Whitman also known as “Skip” to many of the Town of Oakland residents and staff was laid to rest with military honors in Woodlawn Memorial Park on Thursday, December 16, 2021, at the age of 79. Skip was a large man with an even larger heart. His service to the Town of Oakland and the many residents was unmatched. Skip first started serving as a Zoning Board member on April 2, 1985. He continued serving in various capacities including on the Board of Adjustment, the Code Board, and the Town Center Committee in addition to his 36 years of service on the Zoning and Planning Board including a stint as Chair. Skip was always a welcoming figure on the Zoning and Planning Board, always greeting folks and extending a hand. Skip will truly be missed.
