It was great knowing you "Selz". We enjoyed the competition, and the parties that followed.
The '55 PanAm Games in Mexico City followed by the '56 World Tournament in Paris were highlights in our VB careers. You were the ultimate competitor, a fabulous team-mate, and a delightful traveling companion. Our competition and parties occurred many years ago, but we still revel in remembering the 'good old days'.

Many thanks for the good games, and great times.

Gene and Dane introduced beach volleyball doubles to the Ft. Lauderdale beach and indoor players. The top Florida men players such as Kenny Haan and Mike Ryan used both power and finesse reflected in Gene's game.

Gene was influential in launching the pro doubles tour going from So Cal to So Florida the first year of its inception.

I had the honor of meeting Gene with one of his outside hitters Nancy Nunez. We compared volleyball stories all night long over Mexican food. My Florida friends sent him pictures to honor him and thank him for his wonderful impact on Florida volleyball and his wonderful friendship.

May he have as must fun in heaven as he did on earth.
