Evan retired from teaching elementary education after thirty-three years in 1998. Carolyn is still teaching first graders at Clarkson Elementary in Fremont. Evan works part-time at the Fremont Golf Club on the grounds crew and as photographer for the Fremont Tribune. One of his fun jobs is taking photos of the Nebraska football games.

Evan adds some memories: "He remembers when Grandma Nordstrom would have the Greenwall brothers for coffee and lunch and they would sit and talk. They would speak Swedish and English and Evan never really understood what they were saying. He has fond memories of visiting the Havekosts who lived west of Bloomfield. They had a lot of fun exploring and playing in the creek that ran through their property." "Dad was one of the kindest, quietest people I have ever known. Even though Uncle Harold said he was very strong willed as a youngster, I never saw that side of him. Dad never said anything negative about anyone."
