Ole married Selma Wisted May 27, 1956, at Page Lutheran Church, Page, ND. He worked for the Pillsbury elevator for fifteen years before working many years for Donavan Construction. Ole eventually settled in Monticello, MN, in 1970, when he started working for Anoka Electric Corp. as a heavy equipment operator. He retired from Anoka Electric in 1993. During his retirement, Ole enjoyed watching the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Twins, gardening, cutting and splitting wood, fishing, and spending time with his family.
