He was born on August 20, 1960 in Lima, Ohio, the Son of the late Robert E. Custer and Neta Thompson. Robert loved making other’s laugh with his fun energetic and overly animated stories. He loved music and playing his beloved guitar. Robert would say music “spoke to his soul”. He worked in the flooring industry for forty-four years. Robert loved installing carpet, tile showers, and backsplashes. He found joy in making others happy and was always so respectful to others. Robert loved to cut out different types of animal shapes out of carpet and give them to people. Everyone loved his creative side. Robert loved food and would never back down from any eating challenge. He loved the Lord with all his heart. For a short time, Robert helped minister with the Gideon’s in the jail ministry at Randolph County. Robert used the time that he was battling cancer to really seek God and grow closer to him. Robert married the love of his life, Karri Custer on June 28, 2014, where he gained two children, David and Tiffany, which he loved dearly. Robert worked very hard to make sure that they had everything they needed. He loved to travel, especially going to Gatlinburg Tennessee, North Carolina, and Florida. Robert also enjoyed going on cruises with Kari and the all-you-can-eat buffets on the ships.
