Vaun Gary Waite, our beloved Son, Brother, Father, Brother in law, Uncle, Nephew, Cousin and Friend to many left us suddenly on September 3. 2020 from a medical issue.  Vaun will be remember as an exceptional, professional horseman, in the Horse Racing industry just like his father.  His professional career took him to California, Florida, Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming.

Vaun had his own breaking, training, and sales prep business, Rocking VW Stables.  He was the Starter, Paddock Judge and Trackman at Wyoming Downs in Evanston for many years.   Vaun was funny, sincere, life of any party, silly, and he loved with his whole heart.  He touched so many lives!

He was preceded in death by his father Gary A Waite, and leaves behind his mother Lona Offret Waite, sisters Jodi (Angel) Lopez, Cari (Bob) Stott, and Loni Waite.  Sons Wyatt Gary Waite and Jaxson Craig Waite, and a daughter Zoey Kay Waite.  He was a beloved uncle to many nieces and nephews.

He was highly regarded in the horse racing industry, he had so many friends and loved ones.  His   family has been overwhelmed with the outpour of love, memories, and support.
