In Memoriam: Eugene I. Kane Sr.

Posted on November 1, 2003

Eugene I. Kane Sr., 74, chairman of International Limousine Service in Washington, D.C., died from lung cancer at his home in Potomac, Md.

Kane started in the transportation industry in 1969, when he bought a Baltimore trucking and warehousing company with $4,900 he borrowed from his mother.

He built the business into a multimillion-dollar transportation conglomerate that included Office Movers, one of the nation’s largest commercial moving firms, and ILS, a limousine/shuttle bus operation.

Kane remained active at ILS, which he founded in 1971, until August. His son, Richard, is president and CEO. The company operates 84 limousine, sedans, SUVs, vans, shuttle buses and motor coaches and was listed as the 44th largest livery operation in the nation this year by LCT.

A native Washingtonian,  he is survived by his wife of 12 years, Jean Anne Kane, and six sons, three daughters, four stepchildren, 28 grandchildren, three brothers and three sisters.
