Lima was first diagnosed with stage four adrenal cancer in 2017, after doctors found a large tumor that was pushing against a number of his vital internal organs. They removed the tumor successfully, but discovered that it was malignant.
Many of Lima's friend and fans have taken to Twitter to mourn the loss of the singer, with a number sharing photos and messages of sympathy.
"Incredibly sad to hear the news of [Devin Lima’s] passing. My heart breaks for the entire [LFO] family, but I’m thankful I was fortunate enough to meet him and witness the positivity that he spread to everyone around him," on person tweeted.

Lima is not the first member of LFO to pass away after a battle with cancer, as former LFO singer Rich Cronin also fought the illness. In 2005, Cronin was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia and, sadly, later died in 2010 at the age of 36.
While former member Brian Gillis is also still alive, Brad Fischetti in the only official current member of LFO left.
