John Custer, age 74, and his daughter, Jennifer Custer, age 46, both passed away on Sunday, March 15, 2020 at Lake Holcombe. John was born to Harold and Genevieve (Selzener) Custer on August 1, 1945. He married Brenda Zwiefelhofer on May 12, 1973 in Bloomer. John loved his family deeply and especially loved spending time with his grandkids. He was the best husband, dad, and Papa we could ever be blessed to have. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, pontooning, snowmobiling, and hanging with all of his friends, especially Mark. John was a hard worker, always thinking about retiring and finally looking forward to taking life easy spending less time at work and more time with his family at the lake. Jennifer was born October 25, 1973 to John and Brenda (Zwiefelhofer) Custer. She graduated from Bloomer High School and worked for Chippewa Industries and McDonalds in Eau Claire. Jenny lived life to the fullest and always had a smile on her face. She was the best daughter, sister, and aunt to her family, always knowing what everyone was doing. She was a friend to everyone and never forgot a person she met. Jen loved working in the garden, fishing, listening to country music, helping around the house, and cheering on the Packers, Badgers, Brewers and Bucks. Most of all, she was her Dad’s best friend. They will forever be loved and deeply missed.

Just a neighbor here, who lives on Lake Holcombe, as I drove along, I’d see Jennifer wall king her little dog. I will always miss her brilliant smile, it always made me feel so good as I drove along. Eternal peace to Jennifer and her father, John. God’s peace and healing to you, Sincerely, Cindy and Ken Powaga, Lake Holcombe

Brenda and family. Mike and I were so sorry to hear of this terrible accident that took John and Jenny from you. I can’t imagine the pain you must be feeling. Please know we are thinking of you and praying that you find the strength to deal with this. They both had a heart of gold and will be missed by so many. Hugs to you Brenda and when the time is right we will get together. RIP John and Jenny.

Hello Brenda. I'm Bob, John's cousin, who has been living in Ohio for over 30 years now. My brother Ken, who saw John through their business, called me to tell us about the accident. I am just now getting to know about Jenny from thoughts from the family and messages on the website here. As we try to respond to all of this, I want to express our grief as we recognize the tragic loss and deep disappointment you must feel. I relate personally as my wife Midge and I re-live this news thru the memories of our son Gabe who died in a car accident in 2006. He was 31 at the time. We are also parents of two sons with Down Syndrome and operate an Agency here for adults with disabilities called Downsize Farm. We know of the unique bond parents often have with these special children and am sure you have memories and stories that fill your heart of John and Jenny as expressed in the obituary. As we pray for you and your family, we know that it will be those memories and stories that you frame to gaze back on that will strengthen you as you journey step by step in the days ahead. God's grace to you...Bob and Midge Custer
