Pink Lady went back to Japan, and Jeff Altman went back to lounges.

My nomination is Richard Carpenter. He was really talented at arranging music. Even after Karen died, you'd think he'd have a career in scoring movies or something. All of his credits are for single songs that are songs from the Carpenters' era, or documentaries on the duo. Apparently, after Karen's death, he married (a cousin, whose brother had been their road manager, which is just a little creepy, if you ask me), and they have five kids. He's just been a family man since Karen died.
