“Eternal,” Gooding Jr. captioned a pic of the Greatest Hits album cover for legendary Motown group, The Main Ingredient. Gooding Sr. fronted the group, which was most famous for the timeless ’70s hits “Everybody Plays the Fool” and “Just Don’t Want to Be Lonely.”

The investigation into Gooding Sr.’s death is ongoing, and cause of death is still undetermined pending autopsy results, Los Angeles Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told reporters on Thursday, adding, “There was alcohol found in the car…and possible drug paraphernalia.”

“We ask that everyone respect our privacy at this time. Thank you,” Gooding Sr.’s son, Omar, told ET in a statement.

Meanwhile, Gooding Jr. spoke to ET at the premiere of his 2002 film, “Snow Dogs,” about the love and support his parents had given him.

“They’re very supportive. Very supportive,” Gooding Jr. told ET at the time. “When we had moved away from Hollywood, my mom made the decision to move us back just so that I could pursue an acting career and I owe her everything. I love her for that.”
