Denver Moore was born in rural Louisiana in January 1937. He eventually went to live on a plantation in Red River Parish with his uncle and aunt, who were share croppers. Around 1960, he hopped a freight train and began a life as a homeless drifter until 1966 when a judge sentenced him to 10 years in Angola Prison. He was released in 1976 and spent the next 22 years homeless on the streets of Fort Worth, Texas. During this time, he would occasionally ride the rails visiting cities and hobo jungles across America. He met Miss Debbie in 1998 and his life changed. He became an artist, public speaker, and volunteer for homeless causes. In 2006, was named Philanthropist of the Year by the citizens of Fort Worth for his work with homeless people at the Union Gospel Mission.
