    So sad – my brother passed this way 2 years ago this week. He was a Marine with severe PTSD. it is devastating and unthinkable for a family to go through, but if someone is that tortured the only blessing is that they are finally at peace. Prayers for his wife and family.

  2. Halli Graf says:

    So heartbreaking 💔 to hear this. I loved watching him dance. He moved so effortlessly across the floor. He was the reason I ever watched Ellen. Prayers to his family and friends 🙏 ❤️ RIP you are home now.

    This goes to show you never know what people are going through. Yes we always hear this but sometimes all the pain can be missed and masked by comedy. Rip twitch

    This is shocking and saddening. You never know who is struggling. He seemed like a very happy guy, and he was fortunate with a loving wife and family. I remember him on Ellen how he always was so positive and laughing all the time 😢💔

  5. H H says:

    This is just heartbreaking 💔
    He was always so full of energy and good vibes. So sad for his kids and his wife and family. Even Ellen , she loved Twitch.

    • Retro Frames says:

      It shows how fleeting “good vibes” can be. If he wasn’t pressured into having good vibes all the time, perhaps he could have talked this over with someone before it was too late

    This can’t be a suicide – I just can’t believe that. I feel like their is foul play. This is horrible. Allison my heart goes out to you and the kids.

    I met Twitch when I was 16 during a dance camp , he personally taught me and this other kid a dance only for us. He was always great . He was always and will always be one of my biggest idols.

  8. Kathy Lyndsey says:

    I’m so saddened by this news. He’s positive energy eminated through the screen. Such a joyous smile.

    You never know what people are going through. Be kind

    💔💔💔 that is so heartbreaking. Praying for his wife and children during such this difficult time. Mental health is so important please don’t mock depression. Rest in Paradise Twitch sorry you couldn’t shake the darkness when you were such a light to many of us.

  10. Janet J Hutcheson says:

    Man this is just so heartbreaking. I truly wish that people struggling with mental illness or any other issue would know that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary issue, that there is help for the pain. The scars of suicide will never be erased and the question of “why” couldn’t you just let me help you will linger?
    Condolences to his wife, children and family.💜🙏🏽🇧🇸 Oh God, I pray that no one else takes their life and seek help. 🙏🏽
