GREENWICH, Conn. – Rudolph “Rudy” Spezzano, a pioneer of the limousine industry, has died of cancer at the age of 80.

Spezzano founded Rudy’s Limousine Service in 1957. The company now operates the 38th largest fleet in North America, as ranked by LCT.

“My father started with one car and built the company up slowly from word of mouth,” said his son, Gary. “It just blossomed from there.”

Spezzano turned over leadership of the company to his son, Roy, in the late 1980s, but continued to closely follow the industry, according to Gary.

Spezzano is survived by his wife of 60 years, Carol; sons, Rudy, Roy, and Gary; a daughter, Linda; nine grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.

Donations may be made to Hospice by the Sea, 1531 W. Palmetto Park Rd., Boca Raton, Fla. 33486-3395.
