Words by Roger Sitton



Monday, February 19th, 2018 was Brother Horace Bratcher’s 92nd Birthday.

Brother Horace is rumored to be Texas’ Oldest Active Odd Fellow.

Joining Waxahachie Lodge No. 80 in 1949. He is still very active in the community. He tries to visit the hospital & local funeral homes on a regular basis.


He is known for his 1981 Yellow Subaru Coupe better known as the “Sube”. On occasion his wife of 65 plus years (Sister Doris) will allow him to cruise her 1969 Buick Lesabre around town. Happy Birthday Brother! You still inspire us all!

Take the time and watch the linked video made by another Brother to get just a small glimpse in to this great man.
