Dec 16, 1934 - Sept 01, 2011
John K. Custock, 76, died peacefully Thursday, Sept. 1, 2011, in Vallejo surround by his family.
The son of the late Charles J. Custock, a prominent restauranteur and businessman of Vallejo, CA, Johnny spent most of his life in Solano County.
He is survived by Jacqueline, his wife of 46 years; family of children and step-children; Mike Hoey of Scottsburg, IN., Dan Hoey of Vacaville, CA., Lisa Allen of Fairfield, CA., Scott Hoey-Custock of San Francisco, CA., Carrie Deeds of Dixon, CA, Cathy Proper of Palm Bay, FL and Curt Custock of Martinez, CA. Also survived by his brother, Paul Custock of Reno, NV. Johnny left behind 17 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
John was a part of an extended family that grew up in Solano and Sonoma Counties. The brother to the late Rev. Thomas Custock of Rancho Cordova, CA., the late Edward Custock of Vallejo, CA., the late Charles Custock Jr. of Vallejo, CA., the late Wanda Orchard of Casper, WY., the late Helen Begley of Vallejo, CA. and the stepfather to the late Greg Hoey of Fairfield, CA.
Johnny worked for Kilpatrick's/Earthgrains Bread Co. for 52 years. He was a member of the Solano Yacht Club and a proud active member of Teamsters Local 490 since 1953.
Johnny was an avid sports fan and never missed an opportunity to watch his favorite teams. That is, of course to those that knew him, the time he spent in between his cooking a favorite meal. Johnny on any given weekend could be found moving from his grill, to the stove, then back again to "the game." Johnny was a generous host to his family and friends. He spent a lifetime teaching them how to entertain with good food and lots of laughter. Johnny hands down was a master of living life to its fullest. Johnny everyday imparted to others the long-forgotten values of hard work without praise and being self-reliant without complaint.
He will be fondly remembered for Johnny being. . . "Johnny".
