We examine how the TV star came to be known to fans all over the world as tWitch in the wake of the terrible demise of Stephen “tWitch” Boss.
On December 14, 2022, Alison Holker Boss announced to People the devastating news of her husband’s passing.
She wrote in the statement, “It is with a heavy heart that I must share that my husband Stephen has left us. Stephen brought light into every space he entered. Above all else, he treasured his family, friends, and community. He believed that the best way to lead was to lead with love and light. He was our family’s rock, the best husband and father, and an example to his followers.
To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive influence will still be felt, she added. There won’t be a day that goes by that we don’t remember him, I’m positive of that. During this trying time for myself and especially for our three kids, we kindly request your privacy.
Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I’ll always save the last dance for you, she said in closing.
Why is Stephen Boss called Twitch?
Stephen adopted the moniker “Twitch” from his automobile.
Twitch, as he referred to his last vehicle, was an aqua-green Toyota Paseo from 1992 that the Montgomery native recalled as being “very raggedy and would speed on its own at times,” according to an interview with al.com from that year.
Ellen Leads the Tributes to Twitch
When I initially started dancing, traveling, and teaching dance, Stephen said: “I took (the moniker) Twitch when I was approximately 20 years old. A lot of my dance knowledge and dance concepts took place in that car. driving between locations No matter if it was to Birmingham, Bessemer, Bessemer, Huntsville, or Tuscaloosa. In the car, I’d practice my moves.
Following his terrible departure, tributes to the performer have been pouring in on social media.
2014 saw Stephen start DJing on Ellen’s show, and the audience took to him right away. He continued to appear on the program up until its conclusion in May 2022.
I’m heartbroken, Ellen remarked on her Twitter page. tWitch was only pure light and love. I had nothing but love to give him because he was my family. He will be missed. Please offer Allison and his three lovely children—Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia—your love and support.
