Over the weekend, “Fast & Furious” stars as well as family members remembered the late Paul Walker in celebration of his birthday and his life.
Paul died on 30th November 2013 in a fiery car crash in Santa Clarita, California, when a joyride in a USD500,000 Porsche Carrera GT driven by his friend Roger Rodas went wrong. The car spun out of control crashing into a lamppost before bursting into flames, killing both men.
Paul Walker’s daughter, 15-year-old Meadow Rain took to Instagram to remember her late father on what would have been his 41st birthday. The teenager posted up an adorable picture of Paul holding her in her arms when she was a toddler with the caption, “Happy birthday, I love you.”
The sentiment was sweet but also heartbreaking all at the same time:
The above sentiment was shared by Paul’s brother, Cody Walker too.
Cody posted the following on his Facebook page to remember his “pretty awesome brother” by and thanked him for “always and for continuing to be the best role model a brother could ask for”:
On top of that, Paul’s “Fast & Furious” co-star Vin Diesel aka “Dom”, also shared a tribute to his late friend.
Vin Diesel posted a clip on his Facebook page, which shows the late actor at a birthday celebration held in his honour one year ago. In the video, a crowd sings “Happy Birthday” to Paul Walker and he and Diesel also give each other a big-bear hug. At the end of the video, the text “Miss you Pablo” appears. The caption posted alongside with the video of Paul’s 40th birthday reads, “One year ago today….Honouring Our brother”.
The video has since been shared over 91k times. Watch:
Other co-stars Ludacris aka “Tej” and Jordana Brewster aka “Mia” paid tributes to Paul individually. Ludacris shared an old picture of Paul on a humanitarian trip, with the caption, “Happy Bday to an Angel today @paulwalker.”
Jordana Brewster, on the other hand, took to Twitter to remember her friend, saying “#HappyBirthdayPW #ROWW Always in our hearts.”
We miss you, Paul Walker.
Happy belated birthday.
