She added, “He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans.

Stephen, we love you, we miss you.”

Allison Holker, who is also a dancer promised her late husband that, she will “always save the last dance” for him.

I will miss him. Please send your love and support to Allison and his beautiful children — Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia.”
