Kevin G. Bettley


Kevin G. Bettley, 48, of Elk Rapids, died suddenly Friday, Feb. 2, 2019 at Munson Medical Center. Kevin was born on Oct. 30, 1970 in Ft. Myers, Florida, to Ronald and Sylvia (Gable) Bettley and came to northern Michigan with his family when he was an infant.
Kevin attended Traverse City Central High School and also attended Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City.
For the past 16 years he had been the manager of the Miracle Mile E-Z Mart store in Traverse City. He was a very hardworking, organized individual who was a perfectionist in things he did.
He was his mom's buddy; they enjoyed doing many things together and had a special outing last fall to the theatre in Detroit. He will be terribly missed.
Kevin was a Christian who loved the Lord and enjoyed going for rides to relax. He also loved to play with his dog, Molly. Being kind-hearted, he also took time off of work to visit hurricane devastated areas and bring animals back here for adoption.
He is survived by his mother, Sylvia Bettley; brothers, Peter and Michael (Diane); and sister, Susan Carpenter. Also surviving are nephews, Chris and Kyle; and a niece, Jessica.
His father preceded him in death.
Cremation has taken place, and no services are planned at this time.
Memorial contributions in Kevin's memory may be made to the Cherryland Humane Society, 1750 Ahlberg Road, Traverse City, MI 49686.
