LFO singer Rich Cronin dead

LFO, a boy band from the 90s, is suffering the loss of one of their own.

Rich Cronin was diagnosed with leukemia in 2005 and despite a brave bout with chemotherapy, the disease reportedly returned in 2007 and 2008.

According to bandmate Brad Fischetti, the 35-year-old singer died at a Massachusetts hospital.

Rich Cronin was a talented member of the 1990s boy band community. The mastermind behind LFO's catchy tune, Summer Girls, Cronin wrote and sang the hit straight to number one.

Rich Cronin didn't let his medical issues slow him down on the stage. Cronin hit the road with LFO family members Brad Fischetti and Devin Lima for a summer tour in 2009.

He reportedly had a roomy bedroom on the bus to rest from show-to-show. "We had the best time ever," bandmate Brad Fischetti said. "He never thought he'd be on stage again."

Twitter lit up with prayers from fellow boy band members rocked by Rich Cronin's death. Lance Bass tweeted, "Sad sad day that Rich Cronin died -- was a amazing guy."

Our prayers go out to those close to Rich Cronin.
