Deleting default owner of a Flow

How can you delete the author/owner of a Flow? I have a Flow that has two owners, and in the manage owners control, one of the "delete" trash cans is grayed out.

Thanks. What happens to the Flow if the account of the author is deleted?

Then you have a problem. Best practice is that a flow MUST always have asecond owner. We always use a service account so if all the owners leave the flow can still be edited and accessed.

Thanks. I'm already doing making a service account a co-owner. Looks like it's as well-taken-care-of as it can get.
