Cuba Gooding Sr. — the father of award winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. — was found slumped over the steering wheel of his Jaguar this afternoon. By the time the fire department responded he could not be resuscitated, according to TMZ.
Cuba Gooding Sr., was notable in his own right. He was the lead singer of the R&B group The Main Ingredient, who churned out the hit "Everybody Plays The Fool" in 1972.
According to TMZ, his parents divorced and then remarried in the 90s. Cuba's brother, Omar, is also an actor best known for roles in Baby Boy and Barbershop.
The two Goodings have yet to comment on the tragedy.
Cuba was 72 years young.
