After the war, Web married Leah, who was his traveling companion for the first part of his life. She precedes him in death along with his parents, brother, Donald Halvorsen, and sister, Marion Peterson.

Web was employed for many years as a sales representative covering the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. This stoked his great love of Washington State. He was an avid hunter and fisherman.
