While there he met and married Irene Carlson Engdahl on October 5, 1957. They founded Peterson’s Camp where they entertained many fishermen and deer hunters and raised five children. Harold retired from the resort business in the early ‘80s, but continued to work in various logging and heavy equipment operation jobs.

In his later years, he enjoyed living at the Northwest Angle and doing odd jobs for people in the community.
