 A Posthumous Note of Appreciation:
We pay special thanks to and honor the memory of Larry Hopfenspirger, founder of Hopfenspirger Realty. Larry was an amazing real estate developer, entrepreneur, and was one of our earliest investors. Sadly, Larry passed away in 2016 after a battle with cancer. Larry, we hope the fishing is great in heaven!
