    Cuba Gooding Sr. found dead in his car

    Cuba Gooding Sr. found dead in his car
    Published April 21, 2017 FoxNews.com


    Cuba Gooding Sr., the father of Oscar-winner Cuba Gooding Jr. who found fame in his own right with the 1972 hit "Everybody Plays the Fool," was found dead in his car on Thursday. He was 72.

    The former member of the group The Main Ingredient was found in the Woodland Hills section of Los Angeles.

    Coroner's Assistant Chief Ed Winter says the cause of death is under investigation, but drug paraphernalia and alcohol were found in the car parked on a busy street.

    The elder Gooding rose to fame for "Everybody Plays the Fool," which he sang with the rhythm-and-blues group. The song helped the family move from the Bronx to Southern California.

    Cuba Gooding Sr.'s own father fled Barbados and went to Cuba hence the name of his son before becoming a taxi driver in Manhattan.

    An email message to Gooding Jr.'s agent was not immediately returned.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    I remember that song, it's pretty cool. But Don Cornelius' hair sure isn't.

    I meet and knew Cuba Goodwin Jr. back in the early 90's. He was a very nice person, always had a smile and loved to joke around. My Dad and Cuba Jr. become pretty good friends. I have not spoken with Cuba Jr. in over 24 years now and my father has long passed but would always tell me how much he enjoyed Cuba Jr. company.
    I never knew that his father was a singer. He never mentioned it.
    I am sorry for his loss and the circumstances do not sound good.
