The Lee County Chamber announced Sunday morning on Facebook that Leesburg Police Chief Charles Moore passed away.

Moore served as chief of the Leesburg Police Department for over 19 years.

Despite Chief Charles Moore being diagnosed with stage-four liver cancer again last October, his wife says on Facebook that he remained at work up to a week before he passed.

The Lee County community has rallied around Chief Moore, hosting several events in support of him, including a fundraiser to help with medical costs.

Funeral plans have not been announced as of Sunday morning.
