Devin Lima, singer for the pop band LFO died early Wednesday morning following a year-long battle with stage 4 cancer, He was 41.
In October 2017, fellow LFO member Brad Fischetti revealed that Lima had been diagnosed with stage four adrenal cancer and he experienced surgery to remove a tumor from his adrenal gland.
In October 2017, the “Summer Girls” musician had surgery to remove a tumor. “Surgery was great,” Lima’s bandmate Brad Fischetti said in a video. “The tumor was the size of a football. But [surgery] was smooth, they didn’t have to take out some of the organs they thought they would.”
“My son has passed away,” his mom, Filomena Lima, told Us magazine. “His fiancée was living with him and let us know that he passed at 2:45 in the morning. He was struggling for 13 months since his cancer diagnosis. The family is not good.”
LFO was originally founded in 1995 in Bedford, Massachusetts, by Cronin, Brian “Brizz” Gillis and Brad Fischetti.
The band, which picked up popularity during the ’90s, consisted of Lima and Brad Fischetti. The pop group was at first a trio, with lead singer Rich Cronin, yet disbanded in 2010 after his death to leukemia at 35 years old.
Born Harold Lima in Boston, Lima also had acting roles in “Longshot” (2001), “American Pie Presents: Beta House” (2007) and “All That” (1994).
“I wish we had better news to share,” Fischetti said at the time. “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.”
Last July, LFO released their first new song following 15 years, titled “Perfect 10,” and wanted to visit once more. “We miss the presence of our late great brother bandmate Rich Cronin. We will do our best to make him proud, carry on his legacy, and to usher LFO into the future,” Fischetti said at the time.
