World War II veteran Captain Tom Moore has passed away at age 100 after a fight with COVID-19, Reuters reports.
"It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dear father, Captain Sir Tom Moore,” his daughters wrote in a statement released Tuesday.
"We are so grateful that we were with him during the last hours of his life; Hannah, Benjie and Georgia by his bedside and Lucy on FaceTime. We spent hours chatting to him, reminiscing about our childhood and our wonderful mother. We shared laughter and tears together."
"The last year of our father’s life was nothing short of remarkable. He was rejuvenated and experienced things he’d only ever dreamed of."
Moore became a public figure after he had helped raise nearly 40 million pounds for the NHS during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Moore was unable to take the vaccine due to other medications he was on.
"Whilst he’d been in so many hearts for just a short time, he was an incredible father and grandfather, and he will stay alive in our hearts forever."
"The care our father received from the NHS and carers over the last few weeks and years of his life has been extraordinary. They have been unfalteringly professional, kind and compassionate and have given us many more years with him than we ever would have imagined."
"Over the past few days our father spoke a great deal about the last 12 months and how proud he felt at being able to leave behind the growing legacy of his Foundation."
"We politely ask for privacy at this time so we can grieve quietly as a family and remember the wonderful 100 years our father had," the statement concludes.
