Kenneth Albert Bettam December 28th, 1935 - December 30th, 2007. Loving husband of Betty Bettam, father of Ken, Reg, Andrew and Gwen, and grandfather of Samantha, Alex, Ellie, Carl, Holly, and Sophie. He had a great sense of humour and loved to tell stories of his life at sea and working on the buses. He even appeared in the movies The Cruel Sea and Sink The Bismark while serving in the Royal Navy. He loved to travel and enjoyed visiting with family in the USA after he retired. Some of his interest included steam trains, buses coaches and listening to airtraffic control. Really all the boys toys.
