In the early 1960s, Larry and Bonnie moved to the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area where Larry formed and owned various construction and excavation companies that helped to change the Washington skyline. Among other things, his companies were involved in the construction of subway stations, interstate highways, bridges, airports, parts of the National Zoo in Washington, and the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. In the 1980s, Larry’s companies acquired various quarries in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, including the former Millard Quarry in Annville. In the 1990s, Larry and Bonnie relocated to the Hershey area where they established a real estate investment company that acquired property throughout South Central Pennsylvania, including an on-going 500 acre mixed use project in South Annville Township. Larry was also an avid hunter and fisherman.
