Cuba Gooding Sr., the father of Oscar Award-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr., was unfortunately found dead in his car just this past Thursday. He was 72-years-old.

The former member of a singing group, The Main Ingredient, he’d sang the popular 70’s hit ‘Everybody Plays the Fool.’

Coroner’s in Los Angeles said that the cause of his unexpected death is currently under investigation, however, drug paraphernalia and alcohol were allegedly found in the car that he was found in, which was parked on a busy street.

The elder Gooding rose to fame for his hit song, which he’d sang with the blues band. The song was so popular that it allowed him to move his family out of the Bronx and into Southern California.

Cuba Sr.’s own father fled to Barbados and went to Cuba — hints the name of his son — before becoming a taxi driver in New York City.

The Gooding family still has yet to speak on this unsettling matter, however, we are sending up our prayers and well-wishes to the children of Gooding Sr.
