LFO singer Devin Lima has died at the age of 41 after a yearlong battle with stage 4 cancer, a representative for the band confirmed to EW on Wednesday.

“It is with a truly broken heart that that I confirm that Harold ‘Devin’ Lima passed away early this morning after a valiant battle with cancer,” bandmate Brad Fischetti said in a statement. “Devin, as the world knows him, was an extraordinary talent, a doting father to his six children, and a loving partner to their mother. He was a beloved son and brother and a friend to so many. On behalf of the LFO family, thank you for the tremendous outpouring of love from friends, family, fans, media, and those in the music industry.”

Fischetti continued, “A few days before he passed away he said to me, ‘Bro, when it’s over, just tell them I disappeared.’ My friends – Harold ‘Devin’ Lima has disappeared.”

Lima was diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal cancer in October 2017 after undergoing surgery to remove a massive tumor from his abdomen earlier that month. The band had been planning to announce a spring tour before Lima’s surgery, but those plans were put on hold because of his health.

“It’s devastating news, but at the same time, there’s nobody I know stronger than Devin Lima,” Fischetti said in an emotional video discussing Lima’s diagnosis in 2017.

LFO, who found fame in 1999 with their hit “Summer Girls” and released a new single, “Perfect 10,” last year, was made up of Lima and Fischetti. The band’s third member, Rich Cronin, died of leukemia in 2010.

This post has been updated with a statement from Fischetti.
