We were deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our friend and partner, Scott Guild, CPA. He passed away suddenly at home on September 24th, 2012. He was an inspiration to all who knew him, with his tireless commitments to family, friends and the community. Thanks to all for your tremendous support and the outpouring of love and respect folks had for Scott. And thanks as well for many, many stories of special moments. You have continued to help us all to truly celebrate his life, albeit with heavy hearts.
In October, 1974, Charles "Dan" Aalfs, CPA purchased Humboldt Tax and Bookkeeping Service from Hank Lambert. Dan operated the business as Charles D. Aalfs, CPA until October 1976 when Gary Evans joined in partnership with Dan...and Aalfs, Evans & Co. was born! In 1989 Dan retired to pursue investment interests in Alaska and Louisiana. He has since returned to California and is currently enjoying retirement in Redding.
Gary L. Evans, CPA joined Dan Aalfs in partnership in 1976 and started lightening his schedule in 1996, officially retiring in 2002. Gary and his wife, Debra spend a lot of their time enjoying their retirement home in Willow Creek but still call Eureka home. Gary still drops by often to visit and tell tall tales of his hunting and fishing adventures.
