    Denver Moore, a former Fort Worth homeless man, has died.

    Police found Moore dead in his Dallas home. He had been in ill health for years, and the Dallas County coroner's office said he died March 31.

    Moore gained fame after striking an unlikely friendship with art dealer, Ron Hall. The two co-wrote the bestselling book  "Same Kind of Different as Me." In it, they chronicled their friendship and faith in God.

    Hall told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that Moore's death leaves "a void in my life."

    They met when Hall was serving meals to the homeless with his wife, who had a dream her husband would befriend a homeless man.

    Following the book's release in 2006, Moore and Hall gave joint lectures across the nation.

    A memorial service is set for Thursday in Fort Worth. Moore was 75.
