Mark Hearn

It’s been a trip… Dancing across the light fantastic of my life! I have been fortunate to take 63 trips around the sun, and what an incredible adventure it has been. Beginning my life in an Iowa small town, born into a loving family that, along with my parents and siblings, included grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. I learned quite a bit from my grandmothers, who always had their ways of imparting pearls of wisdom that guided me throughout my life. My mother, Shirley, was a saint putting up with my mischievous boyhood and my father, Roger, was a source of knowledge and strength.
