Gooding was the father of actors Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Omar Gooding. During that same period, Gooding Sr. first moved his family to Los Angeles in pursuit of his career, and then abandoned his wife and four children.
Yesterday (April 20), singer Cuba Gooding Sr. passed away in his auto at the age of 72. The cause of death had yet to be determined, but a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department said no foul play was suspected.

In 1977, Gooding left the band to pursue a solo career on Motown in 1977, releasing two albums.
