Max proudly served our country as a member of the United States Air Force and served in the Korean War. After the war, Max met and married his wife, Eleanor, of 56 years. In 1958 the young couple moved to Orlando where they made their home and raised their three children.
Max retired from Lockheed Martin after 30 years of service. He was an avid lover of country and gospel music.
