This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Howard Kearns was born in Springville, Utah on March 17, 1907, and he died in the Ogden,Utah area on July 16, 1947 while on a painting excursion.  He studied at the Springville High School; at Brigham Young University under B. F. Larson; at California School of Fine Arts, San Francisco; and at the College of the Pacific.

In spite of his untimely death, he won a niche in Utah's Hall of Fame.  He was equally successful in oil and water color.  He had a related parallel in music, being very adept as a pianist, accordionist, organist, orchestra conductor and also a teacher of both music and art.

During his lifetime, which was only 40 years, Howard Kearns painted hundreds of water colors and oils; his last painting was Ranch at Birdseye.

On July 16, 1947, he set out on a painting excursion from his mother's house in Prove, Utah, where he lived and when he didn't return that evening, his mother notified the police. He was found in the Ogden area, collapsed from heat exhaustion and a stroke, never regaining consciousness. The family held his funeral in the Prov, Utah area.

After his death, at the Springville High School Art Gallery a Memorial Exhibition of 173 paintings was held from November 2 to the 23, 1947. It was a tribute by the personnel of the Springville High School Art Gallery to Howard Kearns for contributing much to the artistic development of his native town, his state, and to the thousands of individuals who love art.
