Eddie was born August 24, 1944 in Caldwell, Idaho to Edward and Carrie Truesdell. He was raised and educated in Wilder, graduating from Wilder High School with the Class of 1962.
From the time Eddie could crawl onto a tractor he has been farming. If you could name it… he could raise it. Farming was his life.
Eddie loved family gatherings, barbecues, going to sporting events, his beloved New York Yankees and John Deere tractors.
He is survived by: 2 sisters, Clarice Cagle of Wilder and Teresa (Kelly) Thompson of Riggins; 3 nephews, Jackie Cagle, Jr. of Wilder, Charles Thompson of Elko, NV and Samuel Thompson of Twin Falls; a niece, Carrie Ann (Rick) Roggentine of Bakersfield, CA; a brother-in-law, Bill (Diane) Allen of Caldwell.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents; parents, a sister, Gayle and her twin, Dale; brother-in-law, Jackie Cagle, Sr.; and numerous aunts and uncles.
The family would like to offer a special thank you to Eddie's nephew and friend, Jackie Cagle, Jr., for his compassion, patience and loving care giving over the last year of his life. No one could have done it better than Jackie.
