In the 1960s, he and his wife lived in Tacoma, Washington. He gave a big donation to the Tacoma Art Museum which led to more extensive Western Art ownership. At one time, he was the 6th richest man in the U.S., just one position ahead of Bill Gates, but later dropped to about 250th. Haub died at his home in Wyoming, USA.

In the following years, Tengelmann focused on the development of its international Business, which led to the 1979 takeover of The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company. In 2000, he handed the position over to his son Karl-Erivan, and joined the supervisory board.
