He was planning to join the air force and took a trip to Utah to visit his parents. His plans took another turn when he met the love of his life there. After a whirlwind courtship he and Roberta Eggers were married June 25, 1957. People said they were too young and it would never last.

Then he moved his family back to Moab UT where he and his brother Jerry owned a tire shop. He then went back to driving truck until he retired in 2010.
Max enjoyed hunting, camping, and gardening (especially his roses and flowers). He adored his family and couldn't spend enough time with them. He loved his pastor and all of his church family. Most of all, he loved God and served him faithfully.
