— A Brunswick County Sheriff's Deputy has died after a battle with COVID-19.

Deputy Brandon Gore died over the weekend.

Gore was described as a 'kind, gentle soul' and was part of the county's animal protective services. Gore was diagnosed with COVID-19 in March and suffered a stroke weeks after his diagnosis. He was just 30 years old.

Gore had been with the department since 2015.

“Deputy Gore was a kind and gentle soul,” said a Facebook post from sheriff’s office’s page. “He was always willing to help anyone in need, both at work and in his personal life. He had a genuinely cheerful heart and always greeted everyone with a smile. He will be terribly missed by all of us at the Sheriff’s Office, especially by those with whom he was especially close, and those he worked with every day at the animal shelter.”
