Rich Cronin's death was caused by leukemia. He was 35 and has been ill for five years. Rich Cronin was diagnosed with leukemia in 2005; despite chemotherapy, the disease returned in 2007 and 2008.

A message from the official LFO Twitter page read, "Brad & Devin are distraught over the passing of our brother Rich Cronin. May he rest in peace in the comfort our Lord in Heaven."

Born and raised outside of Boston, Rich Cronin formed LFO in the late '90s with friends Brad Fischetti and Devin Lima. Their self-titled debut made an immediate impact, turning "Summer Girls" into a massive hit (it peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100) and moving over two million copies. They also scored a big hit with "Girl on TV," which was about Jennifer Love Hewitt (who also starred in the video).
