John, I'm told I'm a distant cousin. Originally from Massachusetts, now living in Oklahoma. I'm so sorry we never had the opportunity to meet.

I was fortunate to hear coach Wooden when he visited Rocketdyne in Canoga Park, CA. He has stood out for me as a person of honor. I could have listened to him for hours on end. What a treasure!

For a man to touch a person's heart, soul & mind without even knowing the person personally is a very special gift from God and I consider myself lucky to know such a person (gift)lived in my lifetime. A person could tell how gifted this man was just by looking into his eyes and hearing the love and compassion he had for others in his voice. Though I was not blessed to know this man personally, and I know he had a full life, I have found myself grieving the loss of this special man and knowing that he no longer walks among us. May the blessings and love from this great man give his family and close friends solice and may it comfort you to know that his legacy will go on.

I heard John on Focus on the Family and was touched by his humble and sincere heart. He was truly a great role model for others.

I was privileged to grow up in an era when college basketball was more about the team, fundamental basketball, and coaches teaching life's lessons in addition to just the game plan. Coach Wooden was the master of all of the above. He had no aspirations to coach at a higher level as this was the highest level. He reached so many from the kid on the playground, high-schoolers, coaches and touched so many in all aspects of life. I was fortunate to watch all those UCLA teams in their hayday-and frankly I enjoyed watching Coach Wooden develop those great players, and teams instead of keeping track of successive wins and championships though that was the norm during his tenure. What an amazing life Coach Wooden led and his legacy will live forever..

My mom cried for two days upon hearing of John Wooden's death. She says that her dad William Franklin Wooden looked so much like him. She would love to find out the genealogy of the Wooden family, but she does not have the means.
Our prayers are with your family.
