Ric Ocasek’s death was sudden and unexpected, but the creative Cars frontman managed to leave behind a remarkable final gift for two of his sons. The late new wave pioneer passed away in his sleep at his New York home while recovering from a recent medical procedure on Sunday. While Ocasek was a father to six sons — Christopher, Adam, Eron, Derek, Jonathan, and Oliver, as The Inquisitr previously shared — Jonathan and Oliver, his sons with wife Paulina Porizkova, were with him in his final hours.
According to new update updates by the family, Porizkova was at Ocasek’s New York townhome taking care of him as he recovered, and she touched his face and realized he had quietly passed away in his sleep. The supermodel detailed the singer’s final hours in a poignant social media post, which you can see below.
