Sadly, we report that our good friend Roy Fewkes passed away May 11th 2018 at the age of 69.
Roy had been a frequent poster in the atf-differential-trans-brakes-ps
Roy was a recognized leader in the development of driveline lubricants for both Lubrizol and General Motors.
"...At GM he conceived and implemented the company's Dexron licensing and approval's program for automatic transmission fluids...
Roy was the author and coauthor of many patents relating to automatic transmission fluids, dual clutch transmission fluids, and gear oils and their testing protocols.
After his retirement from GM, he became a consultant to OEM's, oil, and additive manufacturers.
Born in Derby, UK, in the 1970's he developed and built racing engines and was appointed to the Royal Automobile Club Motor Sports Association as a senior motor racing official responsible for safety and technical compliance.
His presence and expertise in the Tribology community will be missed.
