At Millikin he met his co-ed wife, Nita. After college, Max joined Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company and in 1964 because of a family situation they moved to Tucson, a community they loved.

He was a past president of Multiple Listing Service of Tucson and a past president of the Tucson Executive Association.
