Cloud further voiced out the unexpected sensation of being famous.
“I don’t like people noticing me on the street, I’m really paranoid. I feel like I’m always looking over my shoulder”.
“I do always show love to people who approach me, but some people just run up and just shove their phone in my face. Dude, I’m not a clown at a carnival,” he added. “But I love when people ask for my autograph. It’s only happened a couple times.”

That harrowing morning, his mother Lisa had found her son slumped over his desk. He often fell asleep in his chair while creating art. But as she approached him to say good morning, she realized something was wrong. “I started shaking him and screaming. I pushed him hard, and he fell on the floor. I tried to resuscitate him — mouth to mouth — and I was compressing him,” she says, sobbing. “I was screaming for my neighbor because I didn’t want to leave him and call 911, and I just kept at it until they took him away.” She wipes away a tear. “I miss him so much. He was the love of my life.” – people

He died on May 18, 2023, “after a short illness.” Conor’s wife later revealed he died of cancer in a tribute post shared on Facebook on June 2, following his memorial service.  

“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,” his wife wrote. “He is the love of my life. He was an incredible father to his three children, and a great support to many many others as well.” 

Following his death, Cloud posted a tribute to his father on July 14, captioning the post, “miss u breh.”

He mentioned that though he wanted to go to sleep after the fall, his mother decided to take him to the children’s hospital, where the doctors detected a brain injury that needed immediate attention.

“I would have died,” he explained of the near-death situation. “That’s what the scar’s from. They cut my head open, they put some screws and a plate over where I broke my skull. I’m so blessed to just have minor brain damage. You know, it’s so minor it ain’t even really worth speaking about.”

Cloud’s twin sisters Molly and Fiona, who also grew up in Oakland, California graduated high school in June 2021, and Fiona currently attends college at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, per her Instagram bio.
