Chris Tucker‘s father, Norris Tucker Sr. has passed away.

Dexter Tucker (brother to Chris) shared on his Facebook page that their father died in his sleep in his Lithonia, Georgia home.

“He was more than my father, he was my best friend! He was a father to all my friends. He was my rock! Known all over as ‘Papa Tuck,’ he was the man! I found him in his bed peacefully yesterday” posted Dexter.

Fans of Chris got to know Norris through stand-up routines where the comedian shared that his father was a hard worker and a disciplinarian when it came to his kids.

According to Rolling Out, “Norris Tucker was a business owner who ran a janitorial service and also played a key role in Chris Tucker’s Comedy Cafe restaurant that existed in Atlanta during the late ‘90s.”

The services for Tucker will take place in Lithonia, Georgia at Tri-Cities Funeral Home.
