Wonderwall Logo By Wonderwall.com Editors of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 48: While many celebrities have been able to recover from coronavirus infections, many, sadly, haven't been as lucky. Join Wonderwall.com as we take a look at the stars we've lost due to the coronavirus pandemic... Captain Sir Tom Moore -- the 100-year-old WWII veteran who catapulted to fame in 2020 when he helped raise more than $43 million for Britain's National Health Service charities in the early days of the U.K.'s coronavirus lockdowns by walking more than 100 laps in the garden of his home in Bedfordshire, England -- has died after being diagnosed with COVID-19, his family announced on Feb. 2. Captain Sir Tom, who was knighted for his fundraising efforts by Queen Elizabeth II in July 2020, was admitted to the hospital on Jan. 31 after being treated for pneumonia and testing positive for the coronavirus the previous week, Sky News reported. "The last year of our father's life was nothing short of remarkable," daughters Hannah and Lucy said in a statement. "He was rejuvenated and experienced things he'd only ever dreamed of." Buckingham Palace tweeted that "The Queen is sending a private message of condolence to the family of Captain Sir Tom Moore. Her Majesty very much enjoyed meeting Captain Sir Tom and his family at Windsor last year. Her thoughts and those of the Royal Family are with them."
