He married Marie Hvidsten on April 18, 1986 at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Thief River Falls, MN. They made their home in Thief River Falls before moving to Moorhead in 2002.

Spending time with family, children, and grandchildren brought him the most joy. He loved children, and spending time with them, especially during his favorite holidays and the week of Gramma Camp. He loved time at the lake, watching the wildlife at their home on the Red River, and wood carving. He was proud of his Norwegian heritage, a wine connoisseur, loved card games and shooting a game of pool. He had a quick-witted sense of humor and had the gift of always making people laugh.
