William Youngblood

11/29/2020

William David (Bill) Youngblood of Warwick New York passed away on Sunday, November 29th, 2020 at home.  He was 58 years old.

The son of the late William H. Youngblood and the late Barbara Johnson Youngblood, Bill was born on Long Island, New York.  He attended Northeastern University in Boston where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice. He earned his pilot’s license and flew the Chopper 2 news helicopter for the New York tri-state area before he changed careers and earned his licensure as a land surveyor.

Bill was a partner in Sparaco and Youngblood Engineering and Land Surveying PLLC, providing land surveying and engineering services for the Hudson Valley region and Orange County for 25 years. He proudly continued his father’s legacy in both the land surveying and aviation industries.

Bill was an active member of the NYS Association of Professional Land Surveyors, Delaware Hudson Land Surveyors Association, and the National Society of Professional Surveyors.

Bill was a loving father and is survived by his children William J. Youngblood and Robert T. Youngblood and his ex-wife Elizabeth Zimmermann. Bill was a proud big brother to his sisters: Janet (Mark) Manizza, Wendy (Steven) Bollenbach, Lisa (Christopher) Locke, and Ann-Marie (Anthony) Volpe. He was a very loving stepson to Nancy P. Youngblood. Bill was a fun-loving uncle to his nieces and nephews: Nicole (Jason) Van Ness, Kathryn and Kelly Manizza, Christian Salama, Hayden and Isabelle Locke, and Dane Bollenbach; and his grandniece Aviana and grandnephew Jace Van Ness.

Bill was a kind person with an engaging presence who treasured his relationships with his many friends and found his greatest joy spending time with his children. Bill was an active parent and coach for his son’s lacrosse team.  Bill loved to laugh and tell jokes and enjoyed playing golf in his free time. He was a member of the Warwick Valley Country Club.

Bill and Bobby, Your dad was a force for good. He was my friend and former brother in law. He was a successful businessman, he was a great pilot and a loving father. He will be remembered as a very special man. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. Nabil Salama and Anna

Really very sorry to hear about Bill's passing. He was always so friendly and enthusiastic when I had vacations in America, where I met with Bill or chatted on the phone. Such a sad loss. R.I.P.

My wife Stephanie and I adored Billy and held him in the highest regard as an old friend I occasionally kept in touch with and hoped to play golf with in the future. I also used Billy as a land surveyor when we built the golf range in Florida NY 30 years ago. He was clearly one of the good guys and I will miss him. My condolences to his family, especially his boys and especially Janet, though we were never close when we were young and had different social circles, I always said hello, because I always new the Youngblood’s were good people, the kind whose company was always an honor and pleasure to be around MM
