Lee Selisky, past President and Board hChairman of the Historical Diving Soceity USA, will be missed
Lee Selisky, past President and Board Chairman of the Historical Diving Society USA, passed away on July 18, 2018. Lee was a Patron of the HDS USA since joining the Society twenty four years ago. Lee freely gave of his guidance, time, and financial support to further the mission of the HDS USA.
An avid collector of diving memorabilia, Lee possessed a wealth of knowledge which he enthusiastically shared with his myriad diving friends and historians around the world. Lee shared his concern for the welfare, not only of the HDS, but of the diving industry as a whole, sitting on the Board of Directors and or Chairing Boards with DAN and DEMA among others. He put his thoughts into action where and when he felt he could make a difference.
Lee’s enthusiasm for diving extended beyond the dive industry to his family as well. Lee often told of trips to exotic locations which he was able to share with his children and grand children. He spoke proudly of their accomplishments.
One of Lee’s pet projects was the HDS Facebook page which he produced. Lee enjoyed posting news and old Sea Hunt shows, and reaching thousands of followers. His last posts to the site were on July 12th.
Condolences can be sent to the Selisky family at the following address.
