I knew Max and Jutta at IRS and they both were always friendly and would stop and chat and chuckle as we moved through the hallways . It was there I found we were both laboring at finishing houses in Ogden Valley. I visited his major project in Nordic Valley several times as I labored away on my own near Pineview Res. I used to see him at the Eden post office and he always had a minute to chat a bit. I bought a clothes dryer from him some years back- maybe 20 years now - and it works fine and I use it weekly. Condolences to the family. Max was a friendly and likeable guy.. Mike Roundy, Eden
