Br. Art Hortze - February 2010
Brother Arthur Hortze was born on the 16th of July in Newark, New Jersey. He attended BOTH Long Beach Polytechnic and Van Nuys High Schools. ART was a member of the United States Marine Corps prior to his pledging. Brother Art Hortze was initiated into the Phi Delta Psi Fraternity in the Fall of 1959 at Los Angeles Valley College
Art was employed for many years by the National Tool and Gage Company. In 2004, he is an insurance and long term care agent for Blue Cross - Blue Shield of North Carolina and for Physician's Mutual. In 2010 "Uncle Artie", as he is affectionately called by his Fraternity Brothers, related to our Brotherhood that he is struggling with cancer. With the help of our little sister Rosalyn Stern and her family, Art has moved from Montana to Las Vegas to be closer to medical care.
This photograph of Art, with Br. Gary Fredburg in the background, was taken at Br. Paul Queyrel's Super Bowl Party.
