Devin Lima, best known for his involvement in the pop band LFO, has passed away. He leaves this world a little over a year after being diagnosed with stage four adrenal cancer, although it has generally been a private battle for the musician upon having to deal with the fatal disease. He died at the age of 41. Lima's cancer was made public by fellow LFO member Brad Fischetti in October 2017. Since then, Lima has fought the stage four cancer.

The news was confirmed by Us Weekly. Devin Lima is the second member of LFO to pass away, as lead singer Rich Cronin died at the age of 36 in 2010 after he battled leukemia for a long period of time. While the members of LFO were no longer together once Cronin passed away eight years ago, Lima and Brad Fischetti remained a duo until Lima passed away this week. LFO is best known for their 1999 single, "Summer Girls."

When Brad Fischetti announced Devin Lima's stage four cancer diagnosis in October 2017, he revealed that his bandmate was undergoing surgery in order to remove a tumor from his adrenal gland. According to CNN, Brad Fischetti said the following statement about his friend and fellow musician.

I wish we had better news to share. It's devastating news but at the same time, there's nobody I know stronger than Devin Lima. No one has a stronger body, mind or soul and if anybody can defeat this, it's Devin.

In addition to their hit single "Summer Girls," LFO -- which stands for "Lyte Funky Ones" -- are also well-known for their follow-up track, "Girls on TV." The music video is noteworthy for featuring Jennifer Love Hewitt. That single peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Summer Girls," meanwhile, made its way to the number three spot on the Hot 100. Additionally, the band's self-titled album went platinum when it debuted in the U.S. Their success was limited, as they broke up in 2002, but the boy band seems to have found some peace among themselves in their later years.

While LFO never found the same success that they held during their earlier years, they were celebrated during their moment in the spotlight and it is a sad day for fans of LFO, as they have now lost two of the three original members of the band. While the news about the stage four cancer hasn't been a secret since it was diagnosed almost a year ago, it is always hard to hear that another life has been taken by the terrible and fatal disease.
