The Tom Joyner Morning Show tributes Leroy “Sugarfoot” Bonner, the distinctive leading voice of the popular 70s group, “The Ohio Players”, who died on January 26, 2013 from a long battle with Cancer at the age of 69.
Born in Hamilton, Ohio, Bonner joined the core members of a group called the Ohio Untouchables to form the Ohio Players in the 1960s.
“Humble yet charismatic, soft-spoken and of few words, the weight of his thoughts, lyrics and music has influenced countless other artists, songs and trends,” stated a posting attributed as an “official family announcement” on the Facebook page of Sugarfoot’s Ohio Players. “He will be missed but not forgotten as his legacy and music lives on.”
