Max left home at 18 and moved to Oregon and then Alaska, where he worked on an oil exploration surveying crew. He returned to PA and enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1959. While in the Army, he served in Germany during the Berlin Crisis and at Ft Lee, Va. Max was an outstanding marksman and while at Ft. Lee, he competed in match shooting competitions as a member of the rifle team and won numerous trophies. Upon his discharge from the army, Max worked as an independent trucker hauling Boston Whaler boats and steel throughout the US. In later years he also worked as a farmer and in the used car business. In his younger years, Max enjoyed camping, hunting, fishing and crabbing in the Chesapeake Bay. He had a lifelong fondness for horses and in the last years of his life spent his winters in Dade City, Fla., living beside a horse track where he could watch other "snowbirds" train and race their horses. The funeral and burial will be private. The family would like to thank the staff of Golden Living Center, Transitions Healthcare and AseraCare Hospice for their support and would especially like to thank the staffs of the Veteran's Administration outpatient clinic in York and the Lebanon VA Hospital Hospice.
