He was preceded in death by father, C.G. Betenbough and mother Bernice Betenbough, as well as his nephew, Lee Harrison.

Kathy, as she was called by, was born Aug. 25, 1962, on the US Air Force Base Nouasseur in Morocco, South Africa, to Wally Allen, and Elvin Eugene Boss.

She was preceded in death by her mother Wally and father Elvin, and brothers, Troy and Justin Boss.

Glen and Kathy leave behind two sons, Cyle (Sarah) and Clay (Emmi) Betenbough; four grandchildren, Addison, 19, Sydney, 17, Camden, 12, and Connor, 4. They also leave behind their adored pets, Gunner and Lola Betenbough. As well as many cousins and family friends.

Glen and Kathy would have celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary on June 20.

They lived throughout the Valley in the last 20 years. They had moved to Phoenix, Ariz., in 1984, where they had a successful rock landscape company, All-Star materials. It was because of this business in Arizona that Glen was able to fulfill his dream of owning and working farmland in the Valley of La Jara and Alamosa, Colo. Both Kathy and Glen did many things for their local communities. They also had a deep love of Hawaii where they often vacation and brought many loved ones along. Kathy was a thoughtful, giving, loving and good-humored woman. Filled with love, she doted upon her children, grandchildren, her many pets and most especially, her husband. Many would agree that she was a patient wife to her love, Glen.

Glen was, at heart, a dedicated husband, landowner, business owner, and Father. He put an abundance amount of passion, hard work and dedication into his everyday job(s). He was definitely a busybody, to say the least! Glen had an incredible smile, when he did so!

The family invites all who wish to come to a memorial service held at Rogers Family Mortuary at 205 State Ave., Alamosa, CO 81101. The Celebration of Life will begin at 10:30 a.m. The burial will follow the service at San Luis Valley Cemetery in Monte Vista.

Any donations or contributions will be made to be given to the Leukemia Cancer Association per the Betenbough’s wishes.

“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins”. -1Peter 4:8 NIV
