Joe Louis Toole II, was born February 9, 1969, in Meridian, Mississippi. Thick curly locks, big brown eyes, and a smile with dimples on the side. When he was born, he became the first and only son of Alice and Joe Louis Toole, Sr. His four older siblings, all girls, spoiled him from day one. Cassandra Gaines (oldest), Katrina Jo Stephens, Jennifer Renee Toole, Rhonda Lorett Toole Allen, and Joe Louis Toole II (Joey), all became the base and legacy of the Alice and Joe Toole Family. Later, his mother Alice remarried and added Keisha Toole. His father Joe added Shronda Shante Paley.

To begin his career, Joe became a Field Engineer, Electrical Designer and Project Manager for Westinghouse where he traveled around the continental United States and offshore in Hawaii. Being a family-oriented man among all the women in his family, he returned home to Houston, Texas.
