Wayne Hearn was born in Gladstone, Illinois. His father, who was a telegraph operator for the railroad, heeded the call to “go west” and in 1912 moved the family to Los Angeles. His home was close to several movie studios so Wayne and his school mates often tried to appear in pictures that were being filmed on the local streets.

He then lived in Salt Lake City for three years and one year in Tennessee before moving to Fresno. It was here that his ability to focus on Art and drawing, and graphics and lettering developed. Following an apprenticeship, he worked for nine years at Foster & Kleiser, an outdoor advertising company. He was skilled in calligraphy and gold leaf application. After a serious injury in 1949, Wayne entered the less strenuous field of real estate and insurance.

He was a member of Las Palmas Masonic Lodge No. 366 and served as its Master in 1956.

About a year after his wife passed away, Wayne Hearn suffered an untimely death at the hands of his handyman-gardener.
