August 13, 2019 "fondly remember walking across the stop 6 bridge on the way to school with him most mornings." - gordon nagy (st clairsville, OH)
July 29, 2019 "John Havlicek was a Phys Ed intern at my junior high in Columbus, Grandview Jr High, and I worshipped him, Lucas, Mel Nowel , Larry Siegfried and the whole national championship team . It was 63 or 64 and I was very disappointed that he only had us play softball during his time with us LOL .
I went on to star in high school basketball at Miami Springs Senior High In Florida ( grad 67 ) . I'm still a Buckeye fan 70 years later of all Buckeyes sports !" - Eric Christensen (Trinidad, CA)
July 06, 2019 "To the Havlicek family,
Please accept my condolences for your loss. John came back to OSU one time and introduced himself to the team. As if no one knew who he was. A truly humble guy whom we will miss. I am so sad to hear of his passing." - Chuck the Buck Kerber (Columbus, OH)
June 02, 2019 "He was first celtic superstar I ever heard of and I was born in the year that havlicek stole the ball. He had superhuman endurance, unselfishness and was the perfect celtic....I was hoping the 2019 team would play like Hondo but they fell far short. There will never be another John Havlicek for us diehard Boston sports fans....RIP to a Ohio St and Celtic legend, Leo Derosia, NH" - Leo Derosia (Warren, NH)

I was thrilled to meet him briefly when he disembarked from his flight from Boston to Atlanta in 1972, a very turbulent flight that was shared by my parents." - John Cummings (Tampa, FL)
