After being married Carl and Evelyn moved to South Portland and would soon buy a home on Saint John Street in Portland where they would raise their two sons, Roger and Robert.
After the boys had gone off on their own adventures, Carl and Evelyn moved to Florida. While there they enjoyed visits from the kids and grandchildren.
