A private funeral for Stephen “tWitch” Boss is reportedly set to take place Wednesday afternoon in Los Angeles.
The small service will be attended by family members of Boss, the longtime DJ on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” People and TMZ reported, citing sources.
A larger service for friends and others close to Boss is expected to take place soon, according to TMZ.
Boss, who was 40, died by suicide on Dec. 13, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner announced last month.
Boss, who had three kids with wife Allison Holker Boss, became “Ellen” DJ in 2014 and stayed with the show until its final episode last May. He became an executive producer in 2020.
“Stephen lit up every room he stepped into,” Holker Boss told People in a statement last month. “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.”
DeGeneres tweeted she was “heartbroken” by Boss’ death, describing him as “pure love and light.”
“He was my family, and I loved him with all my heart,” DeGeneres wrote. “I want to miss him.”
Boss competed on the fourth season of “So You Think You Can Dance” in 2008 and returned as an all-star for the show’s seventh season, where he met his wife.
He also appeared in three “Step Up” films and in the movies “Hairspray” and “Magic Mike XXL.”
“I have no words. There aren’t any,” wrote “Magic Mike” co-star Channing Tatum in a December Instagram post. “My head or heart can not understand this. There is just so much… I don’t know where to begin. Ich liebe dich. I’ll see you again my friend. Until then.”
