R.I.P. Rich Cronin

Rich Cronin

I wasn't much of a LFO fan but I still remember those days in school when I was crazy over Nick and some other girls were crazy over LFO and particularly, Rich Cronin. He's blond, and in those days, I have a lot of girl friends who are crazy about blond boys. LOL! So sad to hear the news that he had lost the battle to leukemia and passed away September 8, 2010 at the age of 35.


In 2002, the group LFO broke up to pursue other endeavors. The band was once famous with songs such as "Summer Girls" and "Girl On TV". In 2005, Rich was first diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia and soon he started the Cronin Hope Foundation to raise awareness of the disease. It is also to educate the public of donating blood and bone marrow. Then in 2009, the band LFO posted a blog entry indicating that there might be a reunion, which later the song "Summer Of My Life" was released. However, on September the same year, it is announced that they broke up again.

VH1 also included Rich in it's reality show "Misson : Man Band" which includes other ex-boyband mates such as :
  1. Jeff Timmons (98 Degrees)
  2. Chris Kirkpatrick (N Sync)
  3. Bryan Abrams (Color Me Badd)
May his soul rest in peace.

He's in one of those boybands back in the 90's.. Not as famous as BSB or NSync but they're pretty OK I think.. LOL! Me and my boyband-crazed days.. Sad that he lost the battle to cancer but hope his cause will continue on
