Nucor Fastener is sad to report the loss of teammate and fastener industry colleague, Roger Hamilton, who passed away unexpectedly on January 23.
Roger graduated from Purdue University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Technology in 1977, then pursued what transformed into a passion for the fastener industry and a career in fastener engineering. He started as a Co-op student with the Camcar Division of Textron in 1976, and after holding many positions with Camcar, his career continued at Sundstrand Aerospace, then Rockford Products Corporation, and finally Nucor Fastener, where he began in 2000. Roger contributed to Nucor in many ways but focused on new product development, in-house and customer training, and also marketing efforts. He was a Director on the Executive Committee for RCSC and worked in the ASTM F16 Fastener Committee.
He is survived by two sons and daughters-in-law, three sisters and brothers-in-law, two grandchildren, and his wife, Cathrine.
