Euphoria star Angus Cloud died at the age of 25 only days after his father’s funeral.
The actor was reportedly found unresponsive at his home in Oakland, with the fire department telling NBC News that they were called to the property at around 11:30 am but Cloud “was determined to already be deceased.”
In a heartbreaking statement to TMZ, his grieving family shared the heartbreaking news of his passing.
“It is with the heaviest heart that we had to say goodbye to an incredible human today,” the statement read.
“As an artist, a friend, a brother, and a son, Angus was special to all of us in so many ways. Last week he buried his father and intensely struggled with this loss. The only comfort we have is knowing Angus is now reunited with his dad, who was his best friend.
“Angus was open about his battle with mental health and we hope that his passing can be a reminder to others that they are not alone and should not fight this on their own in silence.”
The statement concluded: “We hope the world remembers him for his humor, laughter, and love for everyone. We ask for privacy at this time as we are still processing this devastating loss.”
Cloud’s father, Conor Hickey, died in Ireland on May 18. According to a Facebook post shared by his mother, Lisa Cloud Mclaughlin, he passed away following a ‘brief fight with cancer.’
In another post, Lisa shared photos of his memorial service and wrote: “He would have been so honored that so many young people came to express how much they appreciated their support from him. Our home welcomed all our kids ‘homies’.
“About 100 people showed up at Emeryville Marina where we spent many happy times over many happy years.”
She added: “My fella lived large and loud! His cancer moved quickly which was devastating to all who loved him, but there is comfort in the fact that his pain wasn’t prolonged.”
Cloud also took to Instagram and paid tribute to his father. He shared a photo of his father wearing a red hoodie and red sweats as he captioned the post: “Miss u breh.”
