"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," Holker Boss, 35, said at the time. "He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans."

Boss was 40 at the time of his death. The recent autopsy paperwork reiterates the point — and confirms there were no additional wounds, substances or other considerations in evaluating his death.
