SCRANTON, PA – OCTOBER 14, 2016 - This is a special day in the storied history of Kane Is Able. Our beloved founder, Gene Kane Sr., passed away on this day in 2010 at the age of 80. Everyone who came in contact with Gene knew what a special person he truly was. He loved his family, his business, and all of his associates. He thoroughly believed it was an honor to serve great companies and employ terrific, dependable people.
We celebrate though, not mourn the life of Gene Kane. We carry his lasting legacy in the KANE Code, which works as our operating guidelines based on Gene's business philosophy.
Below is the acceptance speech he gave upon being awarded the President's Medal from the University of Scranton in 2008. On this day of reflection, we thought it would be a fitting reminder of how one person's passion and perseverance touched the lives of so many.
