Mr. Youngquist was a native of Aiken but had made the Augusta area his home for most of his life. He graduated from Butler High School and attended Augusta Technical College. He was a self employed general contractor who loved woodworking and refinishing things. He had helped manage the Crockett Farm and he loved horses and riding trails, to hunt, fish and to cook, especially grilling and had been asked to cook for the Bird Dog Trials at Dilane Plantation for several years. He loved to entertain friends, was a friend to all who knew him and always had a story to tell. You could only be with him for a few minutes before you had a smile on your face and were laughing. Mr. Youngquist was a member of Botsford Baptist Church. He will forever be a MIMH.
