Nov. 24, 1932 Pacific Junction Mills County Iowa, USA
Dwight died by drowning during a hunting trip. He was out with Jim Cheyney and Harry Kiser when the motorboat they were in capsized and sank.
Sadly, Dwights father Lycurgus C. Cowardin also died in a hunting related accident about 30 years earlier. His father was 30 when he died and Dwight was just 32. He left a widow, Elsa Geneva DeBolt Cowardin, and three children: Delbert, Collin Hubert and Dwight.
