Willard Dean Youngberg, 87 of Rimrock, Arizona passed away peacefully on Friday, November 13, 2020 in Flagstaff, Arizona.
This Renaissance man was the first son born of Allegra, a teacher and Ivan, a farmer in Galva, Illinois. Dean’s brother, Garth, was born on the same day 5 years later.
In high school, Dean developed his love of sports – baseball, track, and basketball. He added golf, traveling and western dancing after college. He taught junior High for 34 years in Osborn District in Phoenix.
Dean’s life was full of happiness and love for his wife, Jackie, of 36 years, his children Mike (Tina), Teresa (Lee), Doug (Lori), Kathleen (Fred), and Katarina (Keith); Grandkids Matthew, Lauren, Kayce, Shawn, Jena, Jakub, and Adele completed the family picture.
A memorial celebration of Dean’s life will take place in Flagstaff at a later date.
