British World War II veteran and fundraising hero, Captain Sir Thomas Moore, has died at 100 years old.
Moore raised nearly 33 million pounds for the U. K’s National Health Service. He would walk laps around his garden to raise money to help those suffering from COVID-19. Through his efforts, Moore earned his knighthood from Queen Elizabeth in July of 2020.
Moore was hospitalized for breathing problems, and his daughter later confirmed that it was complications with COVID-19 and pneumonia.
Family surrounded Moore in the hospital when he passed. Moore served as an inspiration for many in the U.K during the COVID-19 pandemic, and his bravery and military service will never be forgotten.
