Tillit was the son of The­o­dore Fre­ling­huy­sen Ted­dlie and Sar­ah Ann Por­ter. He married twice, to Na­o­mi Sis­co-Wes­ton (1961) and Ed­na Pearl Webb.

Teddlie came from a family of musicians. He was especially inspired by Frank­lin Eiland, and studied at North Texas State Un­i­ver­si­ty (now the University of North Tex­as, De­nton, Tex­as) with his oldest brother, James Ted­dlie, A. H. Cook, and Dr. Her­bert.

He began song writing around age 20, but his career of music evangelism began in earnest in 1917. He wrote about 100 songs in his lifetime, and was an active singing teacher and publisher.
