A man was found dead in his car in the Willoughby YMCA parking lot Wednesday evening.

Police say he was found hours after he worked out at the fitness center.

According to police, a YMCA employee found 69-year-old George Hollis dead in his car around 7:30 p.m.

Police say he regularly worked out at the YMCA. That day, he arrived at the location around 7:30 a.m. and stayed for about two hours. 

Hollis' wife was worried when he didn't come home so she called her daughter. Family members assumed he was out shopping for his daughter's upcoming birthday, police said.

The Lake County coroner believes Hollis died of natural causes.
