Lester Clotiaux served with the Army Air Force at Foster Field, Texas.
On August 9, 1945, the Foster Field Falcons traveled to Childress Army Air Base in Texas for a ballgame. The Falcons won that contest and five of the players - Chester V Seipp, Lester Clotiaux, Duard Lawson, Harold Phillips and Pete Zarrilla, along with pilot Second Lieutenant Peter R. Davis - flew back to Foster Field in a twin-engined airplane. On the return journey the plane crashed near Smiley, Texas and burst into flames. Lester Clotiaux and the other five men on board were all killed.
