Coolidge, age 60, died at his home in Northampton , Massachusetts around noon on January 5, 1933. Most likely he died of a heart attack. His wife had gone out shopping in the morning and when she returned and called him for lunch, she found his body. He had recently been complaining about indigestion, but no one suspected that he had heart trouble . He had undergone a physical exam not long before he died.
