Alvie was married on May 2, 1952, to the love of his life, Alma Louise Webb. He was enlisted in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1955, after which he moved to Broken Bow. He owned and operated a service station and attended the First Assembly of God Church there until he moved to Durant to attend the Southeastern Oklahoma State University where he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Industrial Arts. Their son, Ronald Dean, was born to them during his last year of college. After graduating, they moved to Seguin, Texas, where he attended the First Assembly of God Church and taught school from 1960 to 1964. He took the job of grade school Principal in Eagletown in 1965. He also taught eighth grade Homeroom, Wood Shop, and Drivers Ed. He and Louise started building cabinets and remodeling houses part-time while in Eagletown.
In 1976, the family moved to Muldrow, and Alvie took a teaching job at Moffet, where he taught seventh grade Homeroom and was also the Assistant Principal. He retired from teaching in 1986 and started building cabinets full-time. He attended the Fort Smith Holiness Church for some years and later attended Eastside Holiness Church in Muldrow. He loved his church family dearly.
In 2004, Louise started to suffer from Dementia and Alzheimer’s and shortly thereafter, Alvie stopped building cabinets full- time to be her caregiver until she passed away in 2015. His health had diminished greatly during that time, But he was not yet willing to give up on life, and was able with diet lifestyle and supplements, to regain his health and travel and do the things he so loved again.
