Paul Hornback has met the challenges of a United States Marine Corps Helicopter Pilot, government engineer and operation research analyst, lay speaker, and church leader but the greatest challenge was his diagnosis of Early Onset Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 55 in 2009. With courage, Paul has turned a seemingly disastrous event into a faith-building milestone while battling Alzheimer’s for seven years.
Paul has also used his experiences throughout his long battle with Alzheimer’s to write a devotional book entitled God Still Remembers Me. This devotional was written for people in the early to mid stages of Alzheimer’s disease. It is a 52 week set of daily devotions organized under weekly topics of interest to Alzheimer’s patients. Since an Alzheimer’s diagnosis doesn’t necessarily come on the 1st of January, the devotional is designed to be started at any point in the year.
Paul and his wife live in Hodgenville Kentucky with their three long haired Chihuahuas, one feisty cat, twelve laying hens, and a guinea. They also have three grown and independent children who have left the comfortable nest of the Hornback Homestead.
