It's been a tough couple of days for Bradley Cooper. His father died just a day before his mother's house caught on fire in Pennsylvania.

Charles Cooper, 71, passed away on Jan. 15 after battling a long illness, according to PEOPLE. In addition to his son, he is survived by his wife Gloria, daughter Holly and sister Nancy Peacock.

According to OK! Magazine, the actor's father, a stock broker for Merrill Lynch, had a dream of being on the big screen, and Cooper was able to make his dream come true last year by snagging his father a cameo in 'The A-Team.'

"It was one of the best experiences of my life. The guy loves to improvise," Cooper told David Letterman on the 'Late Show' last summer. "He wanted to improvise with Jessica Biel. He was supposed to stay in his seat, but he got up ... He wanted to have a conversation with Jessica!"
