Max was born in Sheridan, MI and graduated from Michigan State University with a bachelor's degree. He was also a Captain in the United States Air Force for five years.

Max was a member of Big Canoe Writers Group and celebrated being a published author of "International Business Marionettes". He was an avid golfer with an interminable spirit and a sharp sense of humor and his exit from this earth on April Fools Day couldn't have been more fitting.
