Sean C. Toole
Sean C. Toole of Scranton died Friday, Oct. 14, 2016, in Geisinger Community Medical Center. Born in Scranton, he was the son of Linda Gnall Toole Costa of Scranton and the late James Toole. He was a graduate of Abington Heights, earned a culinary arts degree from Keystone College, and a bachelor's degree in dietetics from Marywood University. He was employed by Southern Glazer's Wine and Spirits as a sales specialist. He is survived by brother, Jamie Toole, Royersford; Erin Johnson Toole, wife, Clarks Summit; maternal grandmother, Delores Gnall, Scranton; and aunts, uncles and cousins. Sean was a loving son, brother and husband. He adored his cat, Jack. He loved politics, cooking, was active in martial arts and was proud to have been a member of the Naval Reserve. To say Sean had a sense of humor was an understatement. He was well known for his charisma and quick wit. His quick wit and sharp humor evoked tears of laughter from those he loved and woes of defeat from those he debated. Always ready to turn a sad or mad patron to glad with a joke at the ready and a smile on his face, his days of bartending made him a local legend. Sean's tenacity for taking a challenge head-on led him from service in the Navy, to extreme physical endurance training and competition to a blade-wielding gourmet chef at the family holiday gatherings. His larger-than-life position on politics and society fueled social media in a way only an icon as Sean "Colin Patrick" could do. He was a man of integrity and his word was his bond. Sean never left a friend in need, and loved his family with his whole heart. To our son, brother and friend - we will forever miss your unpredictably and long for the laughs you still had in store for us.
