Boss’ body was found in an LA hotel after his wife was concerned about his whereabouts. Later that day, his cause of death was ruled a suicide. He reportedly left a suicide note alluding to challenges.
“It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us,” Holker told the website at the time. “Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him.
She added, “He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans.”
Just days before Boss’ passing, the duo celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary.
“Saying YES to @sir_twitch_alot has been one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life!! I feel so blessed and loved!!” she wrote in a Instagram post. “I love you baby and I will never take you or OUR love for granted! I LOVE YOU.”
Boss also honoured the milestone with his own Instagram tribute to his wife, writing, “Happy anniversary my love @allisonholker#9years.”
The couple fell in love while both competing on Season 7 of So You Think You Can Dance. They dated for three years before he popped the question and they tied the knot in 2013.
Holker and Boss eventually started a family. Together, they welcomed two children: Maddox, 6, and Zaia, 3. Boss also took on the role as a “second daddy” to Holker’s daughter, Weslie, 14, whom she welcomed with a previous partner.
They also had plans to have more children as recently as November.
