Dick and Marty Fegy were at first our neighbors in town (Manchester, CT). When our high school coffee house group lost two senior members in 1964, we were looking for a couple of really good musicians who just loved to play. Dick Fegy and his brother Marty were the ones. Dick was always a little quieter than Marty except when he picked up an instrument. Then he out-did everyone in the room, on the block, in the neighborhood, in town, cripes, I can imagine, everyone East of the Mississippi even at his young ripe age of 15-16. We loved rehearsing at his house where he seemed to feel most comfortable. We all felt comfortable there, too.

I left Connecticut in 1967 to join the military service and never really returned to Manchester, except to visit my parents and family. I always tried to look up Dick and Marty to see how they were getting along and heard stories that Dick had "hooked up" with some real pro's.

I can tell from reading these postings that he made a huge impression on all of you as he did with me, Kent Carlson, and the others in our amateur high school coffee house group.

I will be happy to send some pictures of our early group beginnings to your website and hopefully add to Dick's musical and personal legacy.

Sending this note along with fond remembrances of many hours in rehearsals spent with tremendously talented people, Dick Fegy and his brother, Marty Fegy.
