Obituary of Lloyd West

Lloyd "Eddie" West

Lloyd West, of Crest Hill, IL, passed from this life unexpectedly, at the age of 51, on Thursday, September 22, 2022.  He was born in Chicago, IL to Eleanor (Waite) and Harry West on January 29, 1971, and was raised in Glendale Heights, IL by his mother Eleanor, and step-father, Edward Mullins.  He was a graduate of Glenbard East High School.

There was never a task or challenge that Eddie couldn't meet.  Whether fixing a car, helping a friend with heating or air conditioning problems, or seeing that a grandchild's bike was functioning, he never said no, and never quit until the job was done.  Aside from his grandkids and following their endeavors in sports and other activities, his other passion was his daily fix of pizza.

Eddie is the beloved father of Edward (Cassie), the late Hayley (2018), Marissa and Trevor West; proud and devoted "papa" of Anthony, Aria, and Autumn; and fond brother of Ted (Stephanie) West, Kelly Mullins, and John Mullins.  Several nieces, nephews and his uncle Edmund Waite also survive. He will also be missed by his girlfriend, Karen Kedziora, and his former wife Diane Kowalski.

Visitation for Lloyd “Eddie” West will be held on Saturday, October 8, 2022, at the Fred C. Dames Funeral Home, 3200 Black Rd. (at Essington Rd.), Joliet, IL, from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.  As it was his request, cremation rites will be accorded following visitation.  

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the family for the future needs of his children.
