An original member of the boyband, Brian 'Brizz' Gillis, has passed away. Before leaving the group in 1998, Gillis served as one-third of the group. Former bandmate Brad Fischetti confirmed the singer's death via an Instagram post, explaining that he passed away on Wednesday.

According to Extra, Gillis was in his late 40s at his death. Fischetti wrote, "Every story is composed of chapters." Some of them come naturally to you, while others require you to cut them up in your mind. Yesterday, one of the main characters of the LFO story died. "Brizz Gillis passed away."

Suffering And Pain Lead To Darkness

The LFO Story is a tragedy; I have said it before and will continue to say it; I have no details, and I would not be able to share them. I am struggling to process this tragic loss. As you know, I have been trying to bring light to darkness through pain and suffering. Trying to honor the legacy through pain and suffering."

In 2010, Rich Cronin, the band's founder, died after a short battle with leukemia at 36. In 2011, Gillis' bandmate David Lima died after a football-size tumor was removed from his abdomen caused by stage-four adrenal cancer. His mother survives Lima.

Voices Will Make Sweet Sounds

Rich and Devin are soon or already expecting to greet Brizz," Fischetti wrote in his Thursday post. It will be nice to hear their voices together, I hope. I would like that to happen.

As Fischetti noted in his tribute to Gillis, LFO would only have existed with Gillis' dedication and hard work in the early days, during the first and second chapters. He also spoke of his relationship with Gillis, expressing "great joy as well as the great tribulation."

Praying For Brian Is An Honor

As a result, I gained much knowledge about the music business and how to put on and rock a show from him. Fischetti wrote, "I'll lean on those positive aspects of our relationship for the rest of my life." It has been my honor to pray for Brian every day for many years, for his loved ones and his beloved father, and for those who loved him, as well."

The band released two notable singles in 1997, including the New Kids on the Block cover "Step by Step." After a successful late 1990s, the band split in 2002 after releasing the single "Summer Girls."
