When the Stokleys first moved to Cambridge, Grandpa (Marion) worked as a meat cutter, but he didn't own his own store yet. Later, he bought the grocery store at the corner of 4th and Foster, and then moved his grocery to 530 Wheeling Avenue. Max would plan the menus for half of Cambridge when the ladies would phone in for their daily orders. Max would tell them what was fresh, and then take the orders. Later that day, Bob Moorehead and Rex would deliver the orders to people's homes. They would carry the groceries in wire baskets, and usually they would just walk in and leave the groceries on the kitchen table. Some things they would put in the icebox, no refrigerators yet, and the rest on the middle of the table. He said that they would put the eggs in the middle with the rest of the items around them so that they wouldn't roll off on to the floor.

Max had hopes of becoming a priest, and went to Notre Dame to become one. Sadly, due to the fasting which was part of the training, he became sick and weak and couldn't continue. Stanley (Moorehead) went out on the train to bring Max home.

Max was devoted to caring for his parents in their old age and was always available for his brother, Paul Scott. In their later years, Max and his sister, Elsie Marion, shared an apartment until Max died at home.
