HAMPSTEAD - The Hampstead community is in mourning as they say goodbye to a police officer who died over the weekend.
A touching tribute was held Thursday afternoon as police from several New Hampshire towns led the body of Officer Matt Moore in a procession down a packed Main Street.
The 38-year-old lost his 15-month battle with brain cancer on Saturday. Before Hampstead, he also worked as a police officer in Sandown and Pelham and served in the U.S. Marine Corps.
His illness was sudden, and his death is a huge loss to entire community.
“It was fast, I mean it was really fast, and but he had a lot of support from the community; we had lots of fundraisers. I think we really showed that we really cared about him,” said Neil Emerson of Hampstead.
Officer Moore leaves behind his wife and two young daughters. Calling hours continue Thursday until 8 p.m. at Saint Anne’s Church. A funeral service will be held Friday.
