Tom Moore found love again at the age of 50 through his late wife, Pamela, after his heartbreaking divorce from his first wife, Billie. Moore fell in love and married the late Pamela when she was only in her thirties.

The happy couple first met each other in a small English town known as Gravesend. The late Pamela was working as an Office Manager in Gravesend when her striking beauty caught Moore's attention.

Before Pamela, Moore confessed his previous marriage to his first wife, Billie, was tough. Moore and Billie did not see eye to eye, and their marriage was riddled with problems stemming from mental health issues.

Billie struggled with her mental health, and as a result, her state also took a toll on the war veteran’s mental health. Moore added marrying his ex-wife Billie felt as though the two did not know each other well enough.

“Looking back, I realise that the first few months of our marriage were as good as it ever got.”

Unable to provide Pamela with the care she needed, Moore checked her into a facility where she would receive further professional care. Moore’s second wife, Pamela, passed away in her sixties after battling dementia.

Moore, 100, soldiered on after his wife’s death and rallied his efforts towards his viral fundraiser where he would walk 100 laps in his garden to raise funds for the NHS Charities Together during the first lockdown.

The veteran experienced unforgettable moments.

His family challenged Moore to walk 100 laps in his garden by his 100th birthday setting out to raise £1000 by the end of the challenge. When his fundraiser went viral, the war veteran’s efforts raised more than £30m.

The war vet donated the funds to NHS, touched by the excellent care he received after suffering a deadly fall. Moore said he was stunned by the overwhelming support he received towards his cause.

"At no time when we started off with this exercise did we anticipate we'd get anything near that sort of money.

Moore was in shock in light of the news of being knighted. Moore expressed how delighted he was after receiving a letter from The Queen about his knighthood. Queen Elizabeth II knighted Moore at Windsor Castle.

Moore seemed to live a life caring for others until his last days. He inspired the spirit of community on a global scale and had an outpouring of farewell messages from well-wishers, celebrities including The Queen.

Moore is survived by his two daughters, Lucy and Hannah. His daughters fondly remembered the iconic veteran and shared the last year of Moore’s life was wonderful as the veteran experienced unforgettable moments.

Moore’s work inspired people from all walks of life and the late veteran’s efforts towards the Covid-19 fight served as a beacon of hope. Moore launched the Captain Tom Foundation, where his legacy will continue to live on.
