As an integral part of the fastener community during his life, Mel Kirsner earned the respect and admiration of everyone involved with fasteners. Mel started in the industry in 1958 and was also a founding member of the Western Association of Fastener Distributors. Mel valued not only traditional education but also the shared knowledge and experience of those around him. Upon his death Mel performed an act of generosity for the fastener industry by leaving money in his will to what is now the Pacific-West Fastener Association scholarship program. In 2010 the first Mel Kirsner Memorial Golf Outing was held to help add to the fund that Mel started. For links to photos and video, visit
