Rich Cronin, a singer and songwriter for the late '90s pop trio LFO  (Lyte Funky Ones), died Wednesday (Sept. 8) after a long battle with cancer. He was 35.
Cronin, who was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia in 2005, suffered a stroke and died in a hospital, his brother told TMZ .
LFO is best-known for its 1999 hit single "Summer Girls," which was written by Cronin and spent four weeks at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 that year. A second single, "Girl on TV," reached No. 10 on the chart in 2000.
Fellow pop singer and 'NSYNC  member Lance Bass reacted to Cronin's passing on Twitter , writing, "Sad sad day that Rich Cronin died - was a amazing guy." Bass' former bandmate Chris Kirkpatrick posted on his Facebook  page, "RIP to a great friend Rich C."
