Michael Toole worked at Kodak more than 10 years.

In 1978, he injured his back on the loading dock when a large a stack of large film cans fell and he twisted his back to keep them from falling on him. He ended up having surgery for 3 ruptured discs and could no longer do the heavy lifting.

As a boy at his parent’s home, he had a doxie named Susie.

Michael grew up in the West Valley,  Chatsworth area of California.

One summer Michael had a broken leg.

He said his brother Marshall would pick him up and swing him in circles by his cast.

Spirit and Michael

Spirit ripped the drapes in half that are seen in the sliding glass window in the background.

He chewed up the cabinets and ripped out t he cushion in the rocking chair.

The land lady and her sun lived upstairs over the apartment. She said the dog had to go and gave it to her friend who had a house out in Malibu. The person put him in the shed with his other dog and tractor and the next morning he found his new tractor seat eaten. This poor little dog had to go to a family with a little boy but then ran away.

Michael and his dad with the dog.

That’s how he met Wanda, through me. They got married up at the chapel in Camp Cedarcrest. Their 1st son, Michael Toole passed away in 2017. Michael was born in Germany, while Marshall was stationed there.
