Lewis John Bair was born Apr. 16. 1913 to Irvin Lewis and May Narcissus Frisinger Bair. He died Dec. 18, 1944 and is memorialized at the Walls of the Missing Manila American Cemetery, Taguig City, Philippines and has a cenotaph in Wibaux County Cemetery, Wibaux, MT.

Petty Officer Bair served in World War II with the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Spence (DD-512) and was declared MIA/KIA when that ship capsized and sank in a major typhoon that struck the Pacific Fleet.

His brothers, Sgt. Roger R. Bair (U.S. Army Infantry) and Arthur Irvin Bair (U.S. Navy Submarine Service) were also KIA in World War II.
