Born the 18th of Sept. 1931 in Orem, UT, Max and his twin Rex were the youngest of 10 born to John Franklin Pinegar and Grace Murl Ellis. Lynne Frances Johnson became his bride on the 21st of Dec. 1962 in the Manti Temple. Loyal native of Spanish Fork, Max graduated high school in 1949 and then served in the Utah Air Guard from 1951-52.
