He was united in marriage to Gladyce Salvhus on February 17, 1936. After their marriage, they lived on a farm in Hill River Township, north of McIntosh.

Together, they moved to First Care Nursing Home in Fosston in January of 2004. This past February 2007, Alvin and Gladyce celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary.
