Harold Ray Bettencourt: 65, loving family man, successful businessman and cattle rancher, passed on to Heaven unexpectedly and of natural causes on July 18, 2020. Harold was at the pinnacle of his life, and his family and friends will miss their best friend, mentor, and rock. His warm heart and loving arms will be missed by so many.
Harold was born October 17, 1954 and raised in North Bend, Oregon, where he made many friends and true best friends. When Harold came into this world it became a little sweeter. His love for family began with his father, Harold Sr, his mother, Erlene, and two sisters Janet and Joyce.
Harold graduated from Oregon State University in 1978 with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering Technology. He was the CEO of an engineering and development company for the heavy-duty truck industry that is based in Coos Bay. This was where he worked closely with his family. Born with the heart of a cowboy, he loved to ranch with his family. He was also a hunter who enjoyed hunting deer and elk with his loved ones. How much he cherished his family and friends was evident to all.
He had an unquestionable love for his family. Every venture he began was for their betterment. He lived his life in a such a way to make sure he could be a good mentor and coach to his children, grandchildren, and close friends. No matter the project or situation, he was always humble, kind, and hard working.
Harold is survived by his wife, Toni; his four sons Bo, Nick, Pete and Scott; his daughter Rae Anne; seven cherished grandchildren; countless extended family members and endless friends. To his great pleasure, each year his family grew larger, with a new grandson soon to arrive.
Harold was a mentor and friend to so many. He was always there to help. He would sit, listen, and offer wisdom to his family and friends. His strength and loving kindness have impacted so many. He believed in working hard, having a focus, a positive attitude, and always finishing the job. He loved what he did and lived every day to help others, and always took the time to sit and chat. Harold always had a natural ability to find the positive in all situations. His love will be our guide.
