Elwyn became a partner in Computerland in Grand Forks, which he operated until he sold his interest. They moved to Fargo in 2001, and Elwyn was employed by Corporate Technologies. Work relationships were always important to him.
Elwyn and Diane loved to travel and were able to visit many areas of the United States and cruised to several parts of the world. They enjoyed spending as much time as possible at their lake home on Cotton Lake near Detroit Lakes and especially the time spent with his family and grandchildren.
