DAYTON, Ohio — Leroy “Sugarfoot” Bonner, frontman for the hit-making funk music band the Ohio Players, has died in southwest Ohio. He was 69.

A spokeswoman for a Dayton-area funeral home confirms he died Saturday.

And fans have been posting memories on the Facebook page of the seminal funk band.

The Ohio Players topped music charts in the 1970s with hits such as “Love Rollercoaster,” “Fire,” “Skin Tight” and “Funky Worm.” The group was known for its brassy dance music, catchy lyrics and flamboyant outfits.

Born in Hamilton, Ohio, Bonner helped form the Ohio Players in the 1960s. He had remained active in recent years with a spinoff called Sugarfoot’s Ohio Players.
