Kevin G. Bettley, 48 of Elk Rapids died suddenly Friday, Feb. 1, 2019 at Munson Medical Center. Kevin was born on October 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 has been the manager of an E-Z Mart store here. He was a very hardworking, organized individual, who was a perfectionist in things he did. He was his moms buddy, and 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 and also 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 Rd. Traverse City, MI. 49686
