    Rip Don

    By Bob Chickerillo
    Sorry to report that DON YOUNGBLOOD has passed away in his home, apparently the cause of death being a massive heart attack.

    Don stunned the bodybuilding world by beating the previously "unbeatable" Vince Taylor at the 2002 Masters O. Don went on to forfill his lifelong dream of competing in that years Mr. Olympia later that same year.

    Don just celebrated his 51st birthday April 7, and ran a very successful trucking business in his home state of Arkansas with his wife and children.

    On behalf of all the IFBB pros, I wish to express our deepest sympathies to the Youngblood family. Don was a champion bodybuilder, but more importantly a devoted husband, father and grandfather...he will be missed.

    Yeah, RIP Don. I saw a picture of him once when he was in his late thirties, and he looked like your average slightly overweight middle aged man. The transformation that he made to his body was amazing. He was a credit to what hard work will do for you.

    Too bad...true loss to the community. His presentation at the 2002 Olympia was
    impressive.
