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.
