Eddie Lee Gaither

July 20, 1950 — October 22, 2022

Eddie Lee Gaither, 72, passed peacefully to our Lord with his devoted wife, Linda, by his side on October 22, 2022. Eddie was a friend to all, the biggest cheerleader to his friends and family, a bonus dad, and hands down the best storyteller that ever lived. After 30+ years working at GM, Eddie retired only to pick up any side job that let him drive his truck. He loved to hit the road and gave the best travel tips to anyone planning a road trip. He was eager to share his love for the game of golf, his expertise at the horse races including where to place a bet (especially at the casino), and talk shop about classic cars. His loyalty to his family was shown through every story about them and maybe a humble tear was shed. He loved hard and wasn’t afraid to let us all know. Big baby! Known in the neighborhood as Eddie Monster to anyone willing to chat or throw a ball. Eddie is preceded in death by his parents, Luther Lee and Alice Louise, as well as his stepmother Margie Gaither and brother-in-law Robert Allen. He is survived by his loving wife, Linda of 45 years, his two sons Brad Gaither and his wife Tifani, Doug Gaither and his wife Aly, his cherished grandchildren Macie, Rylie, Brady, and Lindy, his bonus grandchildren Blaine and Bailey, as well as his siblings Lazinda McLemore (Johnie), Bonnie Griffith (Billy Wayne), Debby Acuna (Gilbert), and Madalyne Allen and numerous extended family members. Eddie’s irreplaceable humor will be greatly missed by us all. His family is thankful for those who loved and cared for him.

A come-and-go gathering of love and storytelling will be held at Crossroads Christian Church, 6450 TX 360, in Grand Prairie from 2-5 PM on Sunday, November 6th.
