Cuba Gooding Jr’s Father Passes Away

Published: Friday 21st Apr 2017 by David

Cuba Gooding Jr and his brother Omar Gooding have learned that their beloved father Cuba Gooding Sr has passed away.

The soul singer’s body was found in his car parked which was parked in San Fernando Valley and was unable to be revived by paramedics when he was discovered at 1pm.

Unofficial reports cite an alcohol overdose as his cause of death.

He would have been 73 on April 27th.

Cuba Jr spoke about his father fondly during a recent edition of Inside the Actors Studio.

I remember, one of my earliest memories … he would perform at Disneyland, and after his performances, they would close it off to the general public and all the performers’ kids would go on the rides as many times as they’d want.

He would pull me up on stage with him and make me finish the song because I’d seen him perform all the time. It was a lot of feeling like, ‘I come from royalty.

Our prayers are with his family.
