Hi I'm Max

I am a Mormon. I grew up in Utah. Born in Idaho.

About Me

I was born in Idaho. Moved to Ogden when I was approximately 9 years old. I attended Ogden city schools and graduated from Ogden High School. I lived in California for 4 years. I served in the United States Navy and served on the USS Midway and the USS Hancock. Both ships are aircraft carriers. I attended college at Pierce Junior College and Weber State College. My have worked for several companies including RCA, Sperry Univac, Raytheon, Hill Air Force Base, and TRW/Northrop Grumman. I have been married twice. First wife passed away at the age of 22 after 4 months of marriage. I am still married to my second wife. We have been married for more than 40 years. We have 4 children and 9 grand children. I enjoy golfing, fishing, spectator sports, riding in the car, and movies.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were Mormon. I was raised Mormon. I was not very active all of my life but found I was only truly happy when I was living the gospel and trying my best to obey all of the commandments. I love being a member of the Mormon church and I have a testimony of Joseph Smith restoring the true gospel to the earth in the latter days. I believe the Mormon church is organized the same as the church was at the time of Jesus on the earth. I am thankful that we have a living Prophet and Apostles on the earth to lead us and guide us. I am truly thankful for all that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ has done for us and given us.

How I live my faith

I keep the advancement records for the local Boy Scout Troop and have been involved in scouting for many years. I have served in many church callings including home teacher, ward clerk, advisor, teacher, counselor. I have served as a temple worker for over 10 years.
