It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Karl Toole on December 3rd, 2021, at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born on September 28th, 1954, Karl was the son of the late Douglas and Alma Toole.
After graduating from UNB with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration, Karl worked for 35 years with the Town of Oromocto in various roles ending his career as Works Department Manager. In years past, he loved spending time at the cottage on Maquapit Lake with family and friends where there was often a game of lawn darts or 45’s, a daily flag raising, and the occasional beverage consumed. In recent years, Karl acquired a love for cruises and he was able to travel to many exotic places throughout the world. However, nothing compared to the joy he found by cheering for his grandsons at one of their baseball or hockey games.
Karl is survived by his loving partner, Carol Waddell; cherished sons, Stephen (Sharlene) and Kevin; loving grandsons, Gavin and Dylan; brothers, Donald (Mary), Terry (Irene), Malcolm, Philip, Chris (Barbara); sister-in-law, Suzanne; several nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
In addition to his parents, Karl is predeceased by his wife Gladys, his brother Fred, and his sisters-in-law Josephine and Fran.

A funeral service will take place on Tuesday, December 14th, 2021 at St. John’s Anglican Church, Oromocto at 10:00am.
