Billboards honor Michael Stanley.

"Michael battled lung cancer for seven months with the same strength and dignity he carried throughout his life. He will always be remembered as a loving father, brother, husband, a loyal friend, and the leader of one of Cleveland's most successful rock bands," 98.5 WNCX said.

Prior to his passing, Stanley penned a farewell letter to his friends, family and fans. 98.5 WNCX shared his last message on their Facebook page.

"Hey gang...Well, if you're reading this then I am off to catch up with that big club tour in the sky. But before the bus pulls out I wanted to thank all of you for being a part of my musical journey, both on the stage, on record, and behind the microphone here at WNCX," he wrote.
