From Bob Cicherillo:

Don Youngblood: Masters Olympia Champ R.I.P

"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.

From Chad Nicholls:

The untimely passing of an IFBB Pro...

"It is with great sadness that I make this post. Earlier today, IFBB Pro and Masters Mr. Olympia Champion, Don Youngblood, was found deceased in his home.

I can't really give the details yet as the family wants to wait for the autopsy reports until the "specific" cause is determined. As of right now there are a lot of sketchy details.

Please take a moment to think of Don and pray for his family.

Kim, Dominic and I want to send our love and prayers to his wife, Sue and his kids as this is an extremely sad and tough time.

I will keep everyone posted on this and let everyone know when funeral arrangements are made and where they can send flowers/cards.

Thank you,

CHAD"
