Holker described the deceased as the best husband and father to their three children in a statement shared with TMZ.
“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 said.
She added, “He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans. 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. Stephen, we love you, we miss you.”
Holker, who is also a dancer promised her late husband that, she will “always save the last dance” for him.
