A few years ago, Chief Betten and I were enrolled in the same colors/personality class. We were the only 2 "orange" personalities in the group. We were asked to group together by color to discuss our personality traits. I told John as an "orange" I usually found myself trying to find matching socks in the clean laundry basket before rushing out the door. John said something like....I have that beat! I'm digging through the dirty laundry trying to find matching socks to wear before rushing out the door. It was a memorable moment. My condolences to the Betten family. Heaven has gained a beautiful soul.

I will surely miss "Officer Friendly". What a great guy!

Not since Andy Taylor, has there been a police officer as level headed, as fair minded, as competent, or as charming as Fred Betten. If he were the model for all public servants. the world would be a much better place.

My deepest sympathy to Anne and the kids.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Betten family. John was truly and inspiration. I'm proud to have known him, proud to have worked with him, and proud to call him friend. RIP brother, well deserved. FHPD - 136
