Paul Walker tributes

It doesn’t seem possible that a year has passed since the tragic death of “Fast & Furious” actor, Paul Walker. But today marks one year since the handsome actor passed away in a car crash.

Paul’s father, Paul Walker III, reminisced about his son and said not a day goes by that he doesn’t think about him.

In a touching interview with ET, the actor’s father, Paul Walker III, reminisced about his son and the good work he did.  Walker’s father reveals that not a day goes by that he doesn’t think about his son.

He said, “I feel his presence every day.  I miss talking to him a great deal.  He had a good heart.”

The “Fast & Furious” actor tragically died at the age of 40 in a car accident November 30, 2013, along with his friend Roger Rodas.

The father of the late actor recalled the many laughs the family shared in movie star Paul’s childhood home in Southern California, saying there were “a lot of practical jokes.”

Paul Sr. said this son would pose for photos with neighbors but didn’t enjoy the attention that comes with celebrity.

He revealed, “He didn’t like the limelight. Paul said one time, ‘I really don’t like this business, but I can do a lot of good with the money I make.'”

He adds, “Paul just radiated love and you can’t fake that. Paul had a really good heart. I thought, ‘How did I deserve such a wonderful son?'”

Paul’s family, including his brother Cody, are working to continue the efforts of the late actor’s charitable organization Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW), which provides natural disaster relief.

It was launched in 2010 by the actor, who worked to help those affected in Haiti after a devastating earthquake.

Cody recently stated in an interview, “ROWW continues to be, to function, to help others even after our primary contributor, my brother, Paul Walker has passed. I know he would be so stoked to know that. ROWW changed his life, and he was so proud of it. I am so lucky to have had him as a big brother.”

In a tribute post on his Instagram page in January 2014, Cody shared an image with his brothers Paul and Caleb, and shared that he was taking on a role in his deceased brother’s organization.

Paul’s co-star and friend, Vin Diesel,  shared a sweet snap of his daughter Hania Riley Vincent laughing with Walker. “He was a part of so much in my life…long personal talks with my mother or babysitting the Alpha Angel…he took a certain pride in being Uncle Pablo,” Diesel wrote on Facebook.

“After all, we were filming a scene in FF4 the day [Hania] was born, and he being the only one I told, encouraged me to go in and cut the umbilical cord. He was an important part of my transition into fatherhood…that healthy family member, with the most positive outlook on life,” Diesel continued, before concluding, “A year ago today…a year of mourning…and his absence still leaves me speechless. We miss you Pablo.”
