January 24, 1947 was an interesting day. Rock singer-songwriter Warren Zevon was born. The NFL added sudden death to its playoff games. Flying saucers were sighted over Mt. St. Helens. Dimitros Maximos became the Prime Minister of Greece. And Max C. Gardner married Velma Goldman in the Salt Lake City Temple.

Over the years they lived in Wyoming, California and Utah. And 70 years later they will celebrate their anniversary at their home, with their three children and spouses, Michael C., Patti K. and D. Max, in North Salt Lake, only six miles from where it all began. They ate hamburgers at Don Carlos on their wedding night. This time around, they have decided to splurge with prime rib and lobster. It’s about time.

Max practiced mostly oil and gas law for the likes of Shell, Standard Oil, Occidental Petroleum and Getty Oil. He worked on the transactional details of Getty Oil’s funding of a fledgling cable station named ESPN.

Velma is a trusted wife, mother and friend. She was a pianist and a painter. They are lifelong members of the LDS Church.

They have eight grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. Max, at almost 92, jokingly refers to himself as ‘the last man standing’ with so many friends and colleagues having passed. Velma maintains her sharp sense of humor. They are deeply loved and admired throughout their extended family.
