To that union, 3 children were born. In their early days of marriage, Larry was employed by Robert R. Brown as a cabinet maker. From there he worked for Bill Baker as a carpenter and finally in 1979, he & Sharon started Larry Lyon Construction Company. He built several houses in Alva & Waynoka throughout his career. In 1974, he built a house in Lake Dallas, Texas for his niece that stretched his building career to the maximum. Not only did he design the house, he single handedly constructed the house in two and a half months and to this day, it is still standing!
