Twitch dead: Wife, dance partner Allison Holker pays tribute
Stephen “Twitch” Boss’s wife and dance partner Allison Holker paid tribute to the late dancer and TV personality on Wednesday.
In a statement to the Los Angeles Times, Holker confirmed the death of her husband, with whom she had three children: Weslie Fowler, 14, Maddox Laurel, 6, and Zaia, 3. Boss, who also DJed and executive produced “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” was 40. No cause of death was given.
“It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce that my husband Stephen has left us,” Holker, 34, said in her statement. “Stephen lit up every room he walked into. He valued family, friends and community above all and guidance with love and light was everything to him. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father and an inspiration to his fans.”
Boss and Holker each competed on So You Think You Can Dance and bonded over their love of dancing. Boss, who specializes in hip-hop, and Holker, who specializes in contemporary jazz, celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary on Saturday and spread joy by frequently posting videos of themselves dancing together – including one a few days ago – posted on social media.
“To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt,” Holker continued in her statement.
“I’m sure not a day will go by that we don’t honor his memory. We ask for privacy at this difficult time for me and especially for our three children. Stephen we love you, we miss you and I will always save the last dance for you.”
