In a statement to People, Allison Holker said, "It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us. 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. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans."

She continued, "To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt. I am certain there won't be a day that goes by that we won't honor his memory. We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children."

tWitch explained that even though it could be "awkward" to film dance videos in public, the family had a great time: "We took the kids to see a dinosaur exhibit, and it was a drive-thru dinosaur exhibit, and we found our little perfect spot in our drive-thru train where myself, Allison, and our oldest daughter, Weslie, jumped out of the car and set up the camera and did a TikTok with some dinosaurs in the background."

Fans and friends alike will mourn the loss of tWitch's talent and creative spirit.
