Mr Moore (63), who died on Friday in Forth Valley Royal Hospital’s intensive care unit after testing positive for COVID-19 on October 22, had returned to full-time frontline paramedic duties when the coronavirus hit the country earlier this year, giving younger colleagues the benefit of his 40 years of experience.
When he tested positive and began isolating at home he started telling people about his battle against COVID-19 via Twitter.
One of his posts stated: “I never thought it would happen but it’s hospital for me. COVID-19 is a bugger.”

He continued to praise the efforts of staff at NHS 24 and FVRH who had helped him right up to the end and never lost his sense of humour.
People who knew Mr Moore said he would often go to hospital to visit patients he had helped and find out how they were doing.
