Although we had not seen Max in a few years, we are glad that we had so many years of very fond memories as they had been coming to stay with us during Balloon Fiesta for quite awhile before his illness. He was up early with his camera and cup of coffee going about taking as many pictures as possible which he would later share with us.

He liked to pick on me but I think he also liked that I would go right back at him.

Our hearts are in a bit of turmoil since his passing and we have and send so much love to Marcia and the kids. We know he loved them so much and was so very proud of the children because he bragged a bit much about them..a-hem! Although Max has left this world he will live on in our hearts and memories forever.

Enjoyed working for Max at Houston Center. He was a gentleman and friend. Max had a warm smile, as well as a serious expression, yet he ended meetings with his smile. Max was a mentor. Had many conversations with him. No matter the topic Max engaged with clear thoughts and was a great listener. Loved his sense of humor. Brian, my first thoughts of your dad has always been this, he was so proud of you!

What a great conversationalist. I always enjoyed our visits. It was the highlight of my day. We would spend time discussing firearms, cameras, vodka, (he thought it was colorless and odorless so why spend a lot of money), marriage, children, (I have none) and anything that was relevant and current of that moment. Many times we would agree to disagree, but no matter what, I always appreciated his point of view.
He was a dear friend, and a very complicated man, as intelligent people can be. He also had a heart of gold and would surprise me with a sensitive side under a sometimes gruff exterior. Many times we would tear up over something that happened to someone he or I knew. I’ll never forget the story he told me of an air traffic controller that had remarried and when he died the current wife would not allow the first wife and child to attend the funeral. He was really upset over that.
On 9/11 I didn’t have cable at the store so he made it a point to tape two hours of the news and bring it to me on VCR tape.
He could also be difficult. You did not want to be on the receiving end of a tirade but he could separate his friendship from a disagreement.
I will always remember him fondly and with love. RIP Max.
