I just found out a few days ago of Gene's passing. I'm so sad. Gene was such a good man. I worked for him back in the mid 80's at Gladstones 4 fish as a parking attendant. He was the coolest boss I've ever had or will ever have. I also knew his son's Bob and Jack. My condolences go out to all. God bless Gene, he was the best!

Dear Gene,
No wonder the earth-shattering thunder; you've got everyone in heaven playing volleyball and dancing!
Love to Dane, Bobby, Jack.

My condolences to the family. Gene was more than a legend in both volleyball and beach volleyball...he was a character and a teacher bigger than life to me and many others. I had the opportunity to be coached by him for one indoor season at San Bernardino Valley College back in 1974. I still remember those days like they were yesterday. He helped me to accept the injury i had sustained to my knee in a car accident just prior to the indoor season but never let it dictate my attitude toward playing. He made me deal with it and taught me that "proper position on the court meant that i would not have to move that much anyway so not to worry about it" Coach Selznick then proceeded to teach me how to read the attack making my court position seem as obvious as driving on the right side of the road! It was a hard time in my life back then but he made it a time of learning and personal growth. I am grateful that i had a chance to know him even in a small way and carry his memory and lessons with me. David Mercer ( Cape Town South Africa )

I knew Selznick from the 60's. He put me on the Shamrocks team with Jane Ward and other greats. I was a rookie. First Mexican gal to play with such great people. He was the best! Loved him! He will be missed.

So sorry to hear this. I knew Gene in the 50's. He was awesome on the men's Pan Am team in 1955. When USA beat Mexico for the championship, there was a riot. They put us in a bomb shelter while disbursing the crowd. May God comfort his family as you remember the good times! Proverbs 3:6 Alnet "Scotty" Bailess Pan Am Women's Team 1955
