There he met the love of his life and future wife, Barbara Jane Trail. Max spent two years in the U.S. Army, stationed at Ft. Bliss in El Paso, Texas. Following his honorable discharge, Max began working for Idaho Power Company. Max married Barbara on April 28, 1957. He made his career as a Power Plant Operator and along the way taught and trained many others in the demands and intricacies of the career. The majority of his career was spent at Brownlee Dam in Hells Canyon, where they raised their sons.
As a loving family man, Max enjoyed hunting, fishing, and teaching his boys to do the same. He taught them a love of camping and all the outdoor activities that living in the Hells Canyon area provided. Max enjoyed traveling and the annual family trips to the Oregon coast. He developed a keen interest in Intarsia wood working, creating many mosaic-like art pieces from various natural woods.
