So sad to hear. I met him at Summerfest in Milwaukee a few years back. He was signing autographs in a tent. Very nice guy. He will be missed.

I love the old stories of him and Lombardi. It almost seemed that Lombardi was a little in awe of Hornung

I met him outside of Stadium View Sports Bar & Banquet Hall before a game several years ago now, he was signing items and I met him and got his autograph on a hat. Great memory!

As a high school player during the mid ’60s, I watched Horning, Jim Taylor and Bart Starr help lead the Packers to multiple NFL titles. Great player.

RIP Paul Hornung I met him in Chantilly, Virginia at an autograph signing. A good man. An Army veteran, Heisman Trophy winner, and a Super Bowl champion. Incredible!
