In 1950, at the age of 22, Mr. Capizzi took over the family's Landscape Construction business, Capizzi & Co., Inc., after his father passed away. He worked at the business until the day he died, serving as the Chairman of the Board. He passed Capizzi & Co., Inc. on to its third generation, his son Anthony.

In his spare time, besides running his business, Ollie enjoyed spending time at his Hampton, NH home, fly fishing, and hunting.

He is survived by his loving wife of 68 years Rita (Piantedosi) Capizzi, his devoted children Janet Mattos and her husband Joseph of North Carolina, Karen McCarthy and her husband Richard of Stoneham, and Anthony P.
