To the Kent family,

I worked for the late Kevin Keogh, who reported to Selden, in running the city of Phoenix bond program back in the 1970's. I was intimidated at first, as an entry level accountant, but Kevin had the utmost respect for Selden, and I followed his lead. Kevin always said that Selden was the only person he had known that had a photographic memory. I can picture Kevin and Selden now partying like they used to at GFOA conferences. I retired last year from the city of Phoenix, having served the city for 32 years, the last 15 years as city treasurer, and will never forget the admiration and respect that Kevin had for Selden.
My condolences to his family. Rest assured that he was one of the great inspirations to those of us at the city of Phoenix who looked up to him.

I, among many, benifitted significantly from Selden's teaching and mentoring, many of whom became able administrators across the nation. . And he was my friend for several decades.Oh his laughter would carry thru the halls. AND what an Historian!!! And what a library he has. I will miss him so very much. I visited with him ten days before he died at the Terraces. I will cherish that visit Beverly Cone

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. Seldon, we will miss you. You always brought sunshine when you came in. Your family from Melrose Pharmacy.

My condolences to the extended family. I haven't seen Selden for some time now but my memories are still strong. Selden was one of the most outstanding people in city government that I have ever known. It was a privilege to be around him.
