(KRON) – The mother of Angus Cloud, an actor on the HBO show “Euphoria” who died at home last week, said her son’s death was not a suicide.
Lisa Cloud posted an update on Facebook on Friday about “broken time” for their family. She said she appreciates the love the family has received since Cloud’s death on Monday.
“I also want you to know that although my son was deeply saddened by his father’s untimely death from mesothelioma, his final day was a joyous one,” Lisa Cloud wrote. She said he spent his last day rearranging his house and talking about how he wanted to take care of his sisters.
“He had no intention of ending his life,” she said. Lisa Cloud said she didn’t know if her son had taken any substances.
She said he laid his head on his desk, which was filled with art projects he was working on, and fell asleep. Cloud never woke up. He was 25 years old.
“We may find that he accidentally and tragically overdosed, but it is abundantly clear that he had no intention of leaving this world…Social media posts have suggested that his death was intentional. I want you to know that is not the case,” his mother wrote.
She also discussed Cloud’s tenacity through the challenges he faced, including returning from a head injury that could have killed him 10 years prior. She called her last decade “bonus years” and was grateful that her days were filled with creativity and love.
Cloud’s mother asked one thing of those who want to honor her memory: to make random acts of kindness a daily part of life.

As news of his death spread, various celebrities reflected on their time with Cloud. On Tuesday, “Euphoria” lead actor Zendaya posted a moving tribute. The couple were born and raised in Oakland, Calif., and attended the same performing arts high school.
“Words are not enough to describe the infinite beauty that is Angus (Conor). I’m so grateful to have had the chance to know him in this lifetime, to call him a brother, to see his warm eyes and bright smile, or to hear his contagious laugh (I smile now just thinking )…I will cherish every moment,” Zendaya wrote.
