Eddie Lee Triggleth was born February 24,1958 in Lake Village ,AR to the later Pearl McCree and Harry Triggleth jr. who preceded him in death. He was one of five siblings. 

Growing up, he was quiet and shy but he always found time to reach out and help those in need. Lee accepted Christ at an early age and showed love to everyone he came in contact with. Lee attended and graduated from Lakeside High in Lake Village, AR. Wanting to make a better life for himself, in 1976 Lee moved to Chicago, IL. It was in Chicago where he met his lovely wife Ora Williams.

On July 1, 1977 Ora Deloris Williams and Eddie Lee Triggleth were joined together in holy matrimony.To this union, three children were born: Ketyalla Triggleth Sr. Kenisha Triggleth and Lekisha Triggleth. He loved his children and was a great provider for his family. There was nothing he would not do for his family.

Wanting more for himself, he enrolled in Elmhurt College in Elmhurt, IL to study engineering which led to him being employed at Keil Engineering Company where he worked for 13 years. Upon leaving Keil Engineering, he began his entrapanural business as a carpenter. His skills led him to do work throughout the Chicagoland area.

Lee loved to have fun. It was nothing for him to pull pranks and jokes on his children and grandchildren. He would make up games that no one ever heard of. He would purposely fuss just to make up.

Early morning January 22,2021, while sleeping at home in his bed, God called Eddie Lee Triggleth home.
