At the age of 36 in 1982, he seemed bound for comeback with a quick win in Finland, but was never heard of again in boxing. Attempts to track him down a few years back, sadly concluded that Hoydahl had died sometime during 2003.

The last twenty years of his life he was a dedicated outdoorsman and trainer of hunting- and sledge-dogs. He had two dogs that became both European and World Champions in Nordic Style. In 2003 he died from a heart-attack during a training session.
