Our wonderful beloved Dick Betenes (age 75) returned to his Heavenly Home on December 28, 2012.
Dick was born on August 4, 1937 to Gus C. Betenes and Mary R. Brown in SLC, UT. After graduating South High School, '55, he joined the Marine Corps and on April 3, 1962, married Dee, the love of his life. He studied electronics engineering and used his skills for 20 years at Channel 4, Utah Communications, and Motorola before starting UCS Wireless in 1980. Retired in 2002. Hobbies included boating, fishing, golf, bowling and San Diego sunsets. A sensitive soul with never ending generous nature.
Dick was preceded in death by his parents, wife, and granddaughter Cynthia. Mourning his death are his four children, Bruce George, Kitty (Harry) Taylor, Brent Betenes, Kerry (Michael) McLelland, 11 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and his brother, Dean Betenes.
