Original watercolor honors Mr. Ortcotter

It has been over 20 years since Searcy lost Ed Ortcotter but probably lots of Searcy residents remember him.  His profession was painting houses but he also loved painting pictures and took art lessons.  The one above was done by Searcy artist, Terry Williams, as a tribute to his good friend, Mr. Ortcotter, after his death.

I remember him because of his love for Christmas.  He dressed up his yard and house with decorations.  He sometimes had a Santa's Workshop in his front yard and at times dressed as Santa and handed out candy to kids who drove by with their parents.  So if you were a kid in the 1990s you might definitely remember him.   He also was a pet lover and fed birds and stray cats and dogs.  Notice the tears in the eyes of the grieving animals and birds above.

So.....do any of our Searcy Sleuths remember him!  Tell us!
