Baptized Joseph-Armand-Séraphino Descôteaux. Son of Louise Bergeron (deceased in 1891) and Moïse Descôteaux (deceased in 1896). He named his brother Charles-Édouard, of St-Thomas-de-Pierreville, as his next-of-kin. He also stated being born on the 13th when he enlisted. Three months after he arrived at the front, he was evacuated due to a persistent laryngitis and was transferred soon after in England to be treated. He was diagnosed with tuberculosis and was repatriated.

In Canada, he was hospitalized for several months in the Ste-Agathe-des-Monts Sanitarium and, he was not getting any better, he was released from service as permanently medically unfit, on 19 March 1917. He died of illness three months later in Montréal and was buried in his hometown.
