Dr. Betz has lived on the Balboa Peninsula since shortly after graduation from dental school. His son, Andy, and his wife Ya-lei just had twin baby boys.
Dr. Betz' leisure activities include snow skiing, scuba diving, bicycling, and sailing. He has been a member of Newport Harbor Yacht Club since 1975, where he has been chairman of the Moonstone and Cruising committees.
