    Freemason and Shriner Albert "Al" Hortman passed away on Sunday, December 6. He was 80 years old. There's no reason why you would know his name, although you have probably seen his image at some point over the last several decades. It has appeared in TV and magazine ads, on TV, even on the backs of semis driving down the interstate. Brother Hortman was the Shriner, wearing his fez, carrying a little girl and her crutches.

    We have a statue based on this photo out front of Ben Hur Shrine Temple in Austin. It is awesome to know the rest of the story.
