San Juan Capistrano California


David Scott Hearn, age 58, died peacefully with his wife by his side on January 24, 2022, in Newport Beach, California, after a brief and courageous battle with cancer. 

David was born on July 24, 1963 in Kansas City, Missouri, and spent the greater part of his childhood in Albuquerque, New Mexico. As a youth, David loved riding motorcycles, camping, skiing, and swimming. He had a deep love for Hispanic culture and was proud to be the vice president of the Chicano Club in high school, even noting his name as David Hernandez in the high school annual. 

David graduated from Del Norte High School in 1982 and moved to Honolulu, Hawaii, where he enlisted in the United States Air Force. David received several recognitions and honors including marksmanship medals, good conduct awards,  and achievement awards for decommissioning various overseas installations. David served proudly and was honorably discharged in 1988 as a Senior Airman, completing a total of four years of active service, including two additional years of service in the Air National Guard. 

After military service, David married Carmen (Delgado) Hearn in 1988, and they settled in Northern California where David began a career in consumer electronics. David spent nearly 15 years as a leader and regional service manager for various companies including Circuit City, GoodGuys, and Engineered Environments. During these years, David continued to advance his education, skills and passion for a growing audio/video industry and as a result started his own company in 2004, CARVID Systems. David was proud to say the “CAR” was for Carmen and the “VID” was for David. As President of CARVID Systems for almost 17 years, David always put service first and as a result many of his clients and employees became dear and valued friends. 

Along life’s journey, David also became a devout Catholic and he served his faith and community with an open hand and heart. David was a member/Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus, St. Anthony’s Council, Manteca, California, and he cherished the fellowship shared by the men of his council. David also became an avid runner these most recent years and was a team captain for Run3rd which allowed him to run not only for himself but for others. It was David’s mission to see anyone and everyone cross the finish line. David’s greatest running moment was completing the New York City Marathon in 2017. David’s motto was “Always Earned, Never Given”. 

While David did not live a long life, he lived a full life. David loved adventure. He loved travel, being out on the ocean, riding and showing his motorcycles, pop culture, Disney, and he appreciated great food and music. He loved theater, movies, collecting children’s books, and tiki mugs. But most importantly he loved just being home with his family. David was a true gentleman. Kind, caring, giving. He will be remembered for protecting those that he loved. And he will be especially remembered as a loving and wonderful husband to his wife Carmen of almost 34 years. 

David is survived by his wife, parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, in-laws, and many nephews and nieces.

He also leaves behind his young golden retriever pup Enzo. 

A family and friends visitation will be held on Feb 9 at 2pm at O’Connor Mortuary in Laguna Hills, California. A Catholic mass celebrating David’s life will be held on Feb 10, at 11 am, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Ladera Ranch, California, followed by a burial service at El Toro Memorial Park, Lake Forest, California. 

A reception will follow at David and Carmen’s home in San Juan Capistrano, CA. All are welcome.

    David and Carmen were always meant for each other. They lived a life I’m sure some may have envied. But most importantly they lived a life of Love. David took care of his family and the one person who you could count on to make things right. He made Carmen so so happy. I’m sad God needed him home but happy Carmen you had 33 years filled with love from your one and only. I know you have would give anything for a few more years with David. We will miss him dearly.

  3. David was a beautiful, kind and generous soul, always trying to make people comfortable. God’s peace to his friends and family, who will miss him so much!!

  4. Scott Branch says:

    Always enjoyed spending time with David and Carmen. You are both so loving and caring people. A true example of God’s children. We will miss David so much. But we look forward to seeing him again someday in paradise. May God’s love comfort the pain and give us all hope.

  5. Dear Carmen, Chris and I were so very saddened to learn of David’s sudden illness and even more sudden passing. In October we reconnected and had a lengthy and wonderful conversation rehashing old times and making new plans for the four of us to resume socializing once again. In 1992, when Circuit City planned on opening up a brand new service center in Sacramento, David was my first and obvious choice to join me in this endeavor. David was the best manager I ever witnessed in action. He had that wonderful skill set of technical knowledge tethered to true compassion and understanding of everyone’s roll in the organizational chart. He always displayed an openness and trust that permeated the entire organization.
    RIP, Good Friend
