Dwight James Burnham died on Friday April 5th, 2019 in Auburn, Washington. Dwight was born on May 2, 1927 in Renton Washington, the son of Dwight Burnham Sr. and Helen Olson. He married Virginia Cammarano on November 22, 1952 in Seattle, Washington. He is succeeded by his wife, Ginny, daughter, Carol, and two granddaughters, Suhmer and Sherstin.

His funeral will be held on Thursday April 11, 2019 at the Price Helton: 702 Auburn Way N., Auburn, WA at 1:00 pm.

Dwight loved his family dearly, and his grandchildren held a special place in his heart. His second love was sports: he played basketball, baseball and he was also a great bowler. Later in life he became a spectator: he was an avid Seahawks and Mariners fan. Also, he loved playing bingo, bunco, and visiting our local casinos. Aside from this, Dwight was a proud member of the Armed Forces of the United States, and he was stationed in Germany, Japan, Korea and Vietnam. He will be missed.
