Obituary for David Bennett Custer

Some Glad Morning When this Life is Over, I’ll Fly Away….. On Monday morning, February 12, 2018, David Bennett Custer did that very thing. He traded his weary, weak and worn out earthly body for a perfect and permanent glorious body, to live in the presence of Jesus Christ his Lord.

Born October 14, 1946, to the late Mary Othelia Custer and Ashby M. Custer, David spent most of his life working and providing for his family. After working 35 years for Dan River Mills, Mr. Custer finally retired from work after a 6 year stint at Green Rock Correctional Facility. Mr. Custer was a proud and active member of Riverview Baptist Church.

He proudly served his country in the United States Army. On July 26, 1969, David married Susan Marie Holland, and enjoyed 45 years of marriage before her death in 2014. Given a second chance at love, Mr. Custer married his childhood sweetheart, Mrs. Jimmie Stout in July of 2015, who survives. Mr. Custer is survived by his original sons, Steven of Mayodan, N.C., and Daniel and wife, Amanda, and his babies, Austin and Kamryn Custer, all of Chatham. Also surviving are his new children, David Terrell and wife Vickie, and Carolyn Jarrett and husband Rusty, all of Cascade. He also leaves behind 3 more grandchildren, Brandi, Tyler and Destiny. In his move, he also leaves behind two brothers, Garrett Lee and Larry Lynn Custer, and a sister, Margaret “Tiny” Brumfield and husband Robert.

In addition to his parents and first wife, Mr. Custer was predeceased by his brothers, Richard, Jerry and Clyde, and sisters, Arlene Scearce and Susie Adkins.

The family will receive friends at Riverview Baptist Church from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018.

Following the visitation, funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, February 15, 2018, at Riverview Baptist Church with Rev. Daniel Custer officiating. Interment will follow at Highland Burial Park with military honors provided by the Army Honor Guard and American Legion Post 1097.
