Bobby was born in Linn, MS, on October 1, 1950, to Elmer Leroy Hearn and Virginia Laverne Stevens Hearn.  On September 30, 1977, he married Deborah Dianne Garvin in Indianola, MS.  He worked for over twenty years as a manager at a local fish plant.  Bobby enjoyed buying, selling, and trading items as well as fishing, but the one thing he enjoyed more than anything was hunting…it was his passion.
