As OK! reported, his wife, Allison Holker, immediately knew something was wrong on that fateful Tuesday when she realized her husband left their family home the day before and refused to answer any calls, a particularly strange move considering there had been no argument or any disagreement beforehand.

Holker pushed authorities to look into Boss' disappearance, and shortly after, he was found at roughly 11:15 am.

In light of the heartbreaking loss, Holker released a statement confirming her partner's death, which read: "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," she penned. “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."

Boss was 40 years old and is survived by the three children he shares with Holker.
