Washington DC, [USA] Nov 22 (ANI): Musician Brad Fischetti, the member of American Pop band LFO, is mourning the death of his friend and bandmate Devin Lima.
Fischetti is the last surviving member of the band. He spoke about the recent death of his friend and said, "It is with a truly broken heart that I confirm that Harold 'Devin' Lima passed away early this morning after a valiant battle with cancer," reported E! Online.
He continued speaking fondly of Lima, "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."
The 41-year-old artist died on Wednesday after a prolonged battle with stage four adrenal cancer. The team also lost bandmate Rich Cronin, who passed away in 2010 at the age of 36 after battling leukemia.
Fischetti also revealed the last conversation he had with Lima, "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," the statement concluded.
In 2017, Fischetti and Lima had performed as an LFO duo, they had released the single 'Perfect 10' and toured together.
"We were in the midst of planning the 2nd and 3rd legs of the tour when Devin was diagnosed with a very large tumor in his abdomen," Fischetti mentioned on his website last year.
Lima became a part of the pop band in the late 90s, joining founding members Fischetti and Cronin. The group gained popularity for singles like 'Summer Girls' and 'Girls on TV'. Lima had joined the band after the departure of the third original member, Brian Gillis.
Gillis too grieved the death of Lima on social media on Wednesday. "Lost for words!! "God takes the great ones I guess. I am in awe," he wrote on his Facebook account. (ANI)
