Max was born August 17, 1916 at Jellico, Houston Co., AL, the third of eight children of Willie Clarence and Mary Pauline (Thomas) Reynolds. He graduated from Hartford, AL, high school in 1934, but was unable to attend college due to the Great Depression. He left the area in 1941 to pursue a federal government career. He was employed as a surveyor and mapmaker for the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, a part of the Department of Commerce, from Dec. 1941 through Feb. 1972, at which time he retired to High Point, his wife's hometown. His job required frequent moves, often as many as four or five in one year. During his career he surveyed coastal areas except for a three year period in the late 1950s when he was on a crew that surveyed the Bitterroot Mountain chain and the Great Salt Lake Basin. In the early 1960s he received the Arnold Karo award that recognized his efforts in resurveying the Delmarva peninsula after a severe storm that altered the coastline dramatically. At the very beginning and very end of his career he surveyed airports to meet the FAA requirements for up to date surveys of all airports. During his thirty plus years with the federal government he surveyed in all of the lower 48 US states. On April 12, 1947, he married Ruby Helen Luquer at Jamestown Methodist Church. They were the parents of one daughter.
