Not sure what to say?

I just found out Gene passes away...A real loss for everyone..I was so lucky to have the honor or being friends with such a gentleman...He was so respectful of young or or poor .a way with his smile. Hand shake or hug to make me feel like he was so happy to see me again.. I was hoping to call and say hi yesterday..thats how he was. Always a friend to everyone lucky to know him...i hope to see you in heaven again and want your big bear hug and bright you Gene.. God Bless You

Met Gene on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale in 1973. He cleaned up the beach game on the cities beaches. He was a joy to call a friend and was very well respected, even if none of us did know much of his background. He showed respect, and in return, received it. May he forever Rest In Peace!

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!

Merry Christmas, Gene.
Love always,

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...

Iam a cousin from way back.I last spoke to Gene about 4 yrs ago. I am so sorry for his passing and your loss. Contact me at I would love to talk to a family member.

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.

I will miss you Gene. We had some great times! Your energy was energizing.
