MUNSTER — Notre Dame’s Golden Boy Heisman Trophy winner and superstar utility knife for Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers, Paul Hornung died Nov. 13 in Louisville at a top-shelf extended-care facility where he spent his final months under the spell of dementia.

A close friendship of Hornung’s hatched one day shy of 59 years earlier is very much alive at a home in Munster, especially in the basement.
