Jack Youngblood, 86, resident of St. Petersburg, FL, and Hendersonville, NC, died suddenly
on December 11, 2021.

He is survived by his wife Lillian, daughter Jacky Youngblood of Fletcher NC:
two sons, Victor Youngblood and wife Kelly, of Fuquay-Varina, NC; and Tim Youngblood and

He was preceded by death by his parents, Margaret and D.L. Youngblood; daughter, Valerie

Born in Fletcher NC, Jack was a U.S. Army Veteran. He grew up around trucking and worked for
35 years for Youngblood Truck Lines and ABF Trucking. A hard worker who did his job to the best
of his abilities, he drove millions of miles and won several safety and rodeo awards during
his career.

One of his favorite joys was to watch his children and grandchildren participate in basketball,
volleyball and other sporting activities. He became a true volleyball granddad with a passion
for the sport. He was an avid pool player winning several pool tournaments at his Florida
residence. One of his favorite past times was going to the Fletcher Feed & Seed to listen
to country music. Recently, he spent many happy hours riding his granddog, Lulu, in his pick-up
truck. He loved his family unconditionally and he will greatly be missed by all who knew him.

He was a member of the First Baptist Church in Hendersonville, NC, where funeral services
will be held on Saturday, December 18, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Steve Scoggins
officiating. Family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church.

Those who wish to remember Jack are requested to make a donation to the Samaritan's Purse, PO Box 3000, Boone, NC 28607.
