The Southern Ute Drum
CLOUD – Christopher Stewart Cloud, also known as Stew, was born on March 12, 1997, in Durango, CO to Christopher A. Cloud and Valerie C. Eustace.
Stew was a very kind-hearted young man who would help anyone no matter who they were. He never judged others for their faults because he knew we all had our ups and downs. Although, he never graduated high school he was still working to achieve his GED. Just because he didn’t graduate, high school didn’t mean that he wasn’t intelligent because he was a very bright, smart young man who when faced with difficult times always knew how to overcome them.
Stew loved to do many things, but a few things that came to mind that he enjoyed were; hanging out with his friends, driving around in his car when he had the chance, played many video games that caught his attention, listening to music when he needed to clear his mind. Most of all he loved his space and being able just to relax and spend time with himself.
A lot of us knew the hard times he was facing before all of this, but he always kept a smile on his face no matter what, that’s what was so great about him that no matter what was bothering him he was always smiling.
Stew passed away on August 3, 2017, in Cuba, New Mexico. He is welcomed in death by; Roger Cloud, Nelson Eustace, Theatis Williams, Nathan Cloud “Uncle Nate,” Gemini Cloud and Chan Silvernail. At times, he may have felt alone but he was never alone, and he was loved by many. He will be greatly missed by all those who have had the privilege of knowing such a great young man.
He is survived by both parents, Stepfather Shawn Thompson, Grandparents; Sharon Cloud and Charlotte Pena. Sisters: Gracelynn Thompson, Angelica Cloud, Sierra Cuthair, Krislynn Thompson, Natelle Thompson and Aria Cloud-Palmer. Brothers: CJ Cloud, Kyle Thompson, Dante Cloud-Palmer and Vergil Cloud-Palmer.
