Lima reportedly passed away at 41 years old after losing his yearlong battle with stage 4 cancer. Lima was a member of the pop trio Lyte Funkie Ones (LFO), best known for their 1999 hit song “Summer Girls.”
The group also lost lead singer/songwriter Rich Cronin to leukemia in 2010. The band is survived by Brad Fischetti, now the only remaining original member.
Fans on Twitter not only mourned Lima’s death by promising to play “Summer Girls” in his honor, but also sent their thoughts and prayers to Fischetti, after now having lost all of his band members to cancer.
See some of the tributes below.

It’s kind of mind boggling that two-thirds of the group LFO are no longer alive. Excuse me while I go listen to “The Girl on TV”. RIP Devin Lima https://t.co/x0E7cOmJOZ

Very sorry to hear about the passing of @devinlima from @TheRealLFO. Sending love & strength to @bradfischetti. I had the pleasure of doing their music video #GirlOnTv when I was a teenager & remember how nice all 3 were to everyone. [–] #DevinLima https://t.co/511fq9Bzd6
