To the Fede's Family:

Words can't express my sadness to hear about Herc's passing. Herc was a kind, honest man who I respected and admired. We will all miss him dearly, but now his is in God's hands.

In memory of my friend, Herc Fede (world renowned guitar painter/swirler), I would like to thank you for great, inspirational swirl guitar art that you provided for me many others through out the globe, but most of all, thank for being an awesome, down to earth, honest, and Godly like person. I will miss our talks about faith, family, and guitars. God has truly blessed you and now RIP my friend.

Once again to the Fede's Family, I'm so sorry about your loss and my God Bless you and your family doing this heartbreaking time,

Chuck Hebert

To the Fede family,

I am terribly sorry for your loss. Herc did some work on a guitar for me several years back and I got to know him through email a bit during the months that it took. I found Herc to be a very kind and professional gentleman. He was a true artist and he will be missed dearly.

To the Fede family: So very sorry to hear the sad news of Herc's passing. Herc and I met sometime around 1987 or 88 through a mutual friend John Cucetta. The three of us played music together for a short time in what you might call a band with no name. We just jammed together at my house in South Philly and had fun. We were kids and not that great at the time. Herc invited me to his house somewhere near 13th street I think it was where he lived with his parents and brother. For some reason we lost touch after that and never talked or saw each other again. Through the years I always wondered what ever happened to Herc. You see, Herc was such a talented musician and super nice guy and we hit it off as friends very easily that left a huge impression on me and I always wanted to track him down again to say hi and catch up. Then one day about maybe 8 years ago I googled his name and discovered that he was painting these amazing guitars and was somewhat well known all over in guitar circles. I was not shocked, because like I said, he was such a talented guy. I was proud of him and was bragging to my wife that "Hey I used to play music together with that guy". Guitar is my love, and I thought it was so cool that he still played, and even more amazing that he was making these beautiful guitars. I said "I gotta get in touch with him" "maybe I will have him paint me one of his masterpieces for an old fellow guitar loving friend?" Well you know how it goes right? I was busy and kept putting it off. Then yesterday on October 29th, 2015, I searched his name again and find this....(I'm not going to lie...I cried like a baby) I didn't know him very long and I haven't seen or talked to him in almost 30 years but still felt the pain of his death. I just think it was the sadness that I will never get to re-kindle that friendship with him again and tell him how amazing his art was. Wow...I am so down right now! My condolences to his family and friends. R.I.P My friend Herc....-Nick Ettore
