Paul Walker and Meadow
(Did Paul Walker had a daughter?)
His daughter, Meadow Rain Walker was born in 1998. Her mother Rebecca Soteros did not stay with Paul Walker but she trusted him with all the decisions concerning Meadow. Paul tried to spend as much time he could with his daughter and she was 15 when he passed away.
Still recovering from his father’s demise Meadow has grown into a beautiful young woman who has learned to enjoy her life by traveling and leading an active lifestyle. She has constantly been working with the Paul Walker Foundation to spread the legacy of her father.
After Paul Walker’s death, Meadow filed a lawsuit against Porsche blaming the car for her father’s demise. Her lawyers had claimed the car had “a history of instability and control issues”, adding: “The bottom line is that the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car. It doesn’t belong on the street. And we shouldn’t be without Paul Walker.
But Porsche claimed Paul Walker was “a knowledgeable and sophisticated user of the 2005 Carrera GT” and should not have allowed Rodas to have driven at such a high speed.
The company rejected claims their design was at fault, claiming the car “was abused and altered,” as well as “misused and improperly maintained.”
Meadow,18, has settled with Porsche over the lawsuit and the details have been kept private. The late actor’s entire estate worth $25million has been left behind for Meadow. Rebecca Soteros was awarded $10.1million after a settlement with Rodas’s estate which will be paid to Walker’s trust.
Paul Walker’s Car Accident
Roger Rodas and Paul Walker, on November 30, 2013, were four dead in a burnt-out Porsche Carrera GT in Los Angeles. Paul’s car was crashed into a concrete lamp post and two trees at a speed of more than 100mph which burst into flames.
According to the reports Paul Walker died from the combined effects of trauma and burns whereas Rodas who was driving the car died of multiple trauma. The bodies were burned beyond recognition. As some people might speculate, no traces of drugs or alcohol was found in their bodies.
The two gentlemen were returning from an event for Paul Walker’s charity Reach Out Worldwide when this happened. The age of tires was concluded as the primary reason for the crash as there were no mechanical failure or road conditions that may appear as the reason for the accident.
Though, the curve where Rogers and Paul Walker hit the lamp is a popular curve for drifting cars.
Paul Walker Funeral
The blue-eyed angel, Paul William Walker IV was laid to rest in a private ceremony at Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills. The service marked an opportunity for Paul Walker’s family, friends and co-actors to bid him goodbye one last time after he was found dead in a car accident alongside Roger Rodas on 30 November 2013.
Tyrese Gibson who was a friend, brother, and co-actor in Fast and Furious series paid a further tribute to the star, posting the following message:
“Today In a room full of your loved ones I wish today was your wedding instead… God has a better plan even beyond ALL of our own understandings…… For selfish reasons we all wanted you to stay, another laugh, another take, another talk, another moment….. I guess you can’t get all you ask for in life… But our hearts are FULL of all the moments we DID have, 13 years of laughter and grace, humility and love…..
“Never did I take my access for granted… Continue praying for his #Family, his daughter #Meadow, you are the WORLDS best friend that’s why we’re all feeling it… #RIHAW Rest In Heaven Angel Walker”
By the afternoon, the crowd who wanted to bid goodbye to Paul Walker rose up to 5,000 and were peaceful (mourning).
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker
Everyone who is a fan of Paul Walker knows how close Paul and Vin was *still is* and the actor’s sudden demise put everyone in a state of shock. Vin Diesel is still trying to cope up with the fact that his best friend, his brother Pablo is nowhere to be around but smiling at him from heaven.
Diesel flew from Atlanta to see Paul Walker’s mother after the fatal accident in 2013, but to his surprise, Paul Walker’s mother comforted Vin for the loss.
He explains, she said “I am so sorry, I am so sorry”, And I said, ‘Why?'” Diesel said. “Why are you apologizing to me? And she says to me, ‘Because you lost your other half.'” That is when it hit him about the loss that he has to face.
In various award functions and interview Vin has shared how much he meant to him and every other member of the Fast and Furious franchise. At the Fast and Furious’ eight installment premier Diesel honored his brother:
“I just want you to know, there wasn’t a second we made this movie, not a minute … not a day that went by that we weren’t thinking about our brother, Pablo, and how to bring him into the movie and how to represent him and to make something that he will be proud of,” he said. “Pablo, I hope you are proud tonight.”
Diesel named his daughter Pauline in honor of his friend.
“We’re probably all a little guilty of not telling people how much we love them, while they’re here,” he told SiriusXM. “And my mother only told me this a month ago, that his mother told my mom, ‘Love your child. Just love your child.'”
Why do people think He’s still alive?
(Is Paul Walker still alive?)
On November 30, 2013, Paul Walker along with Roger Rodas died in a car accident when their Porsche hit the lamppost and crashed into a tree. The car burst out into flames which made the bodies of the two unrecognized.
Due to the fact that the fans couldn’t see his body, many have speculated that Paul Walker is still alive. The autopsy results of Paul Walker’s body were placed on “Security Hold” which just added fuel to the theories of fans about him being alive.
Some people believed that the number of plates found on the cars are different. The color of the car changed after the accident? The Porsche Paul Walker had was orange but after the accident, it looks red. People still claim that Paul Walker’s death was a hoax. The car he died it was not his but his friend’s and so he did not fake it. He’s hanging out with Elvis, & Tupac in the Bahamas.
Paul Walker’s Brothers
Cody, Caleb, Ashlie, and Amy have been trying to recover from their brother’s demise and since his accident, it’s been hard on them. Caleb and Cody who actually look like Paul Walker were the ones tapped to stand in for their brother in his final film, Fast and Furious 7 which he left unfinished.
Caleb revealed that taking up their brother’s work in the blockbuster franchise, getting to know his co-stars and friends — such as Vin Diesel and Tyrese Gibson — was therapeutic for the brothers.
“We got to understand more about Paul and what he was all about,” Caleb told Entertainment Tonight in September 2016. “We had to share Paul with a lot of people, in a weird way. He was gone a lot, he was filming, so we missed him.
Sometimes at the holidays, he wasn’t always there, you know? He tried. We’d see him on set, we visited a few times, but to kind of get that closure and understanding [of] Paul was really special.”
Both Cody and Caleb are married with their own little ones. Caleb and his wife gave their son a moniker in honor of his late brother. Cody decided to become an actor like Paul Walker. He was part of the cast for 2016’s USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage, this year’s The Last Full Measure.
According to some rumors, Cody could join the Fast and the Furious franchise as a new character. He is also working with the disaster relief charity that Paul Walker founded, Reach Out WorldWide, and is currently CEO.

Paul Walker Charity
It’s been five years since the blue-eyed soul left us with just memories. Paul Walker was best known for his acting career but he was passionate about the ocean as well. He has a strong interest in marine life, and he was a major in marine biology.
Paul catches and tagged seven great white sharks in 2010 to help track and monitor them in Mexico. The Paul Walker Foundation was founded after the death of the star to continue his humble work for the ocean. They help the “ocean leaders” of tomorrow to protect seas and creatures who live within them. His daughter Meadow is taken upon her to spread Paul’s legacy.
“Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions,” Meadow said on the PWF website.”His passion for the ocean, his passions for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people, and his passion for spontaneous goodwill. I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world.”
“When you put good will out there it’s amazing what can be accomplished.” – Paul Walker
According to some reports when a tornado hit Tuscaloosa, Ala. in 2011, Paul Walker headed there to help with manual labor requesting no fanfare. He just wanted to help without anyone knowing that he was there. After a massive earthquake hit Haiti in 2010, Paul used money out of his pocket to help the disaster-relief people.
He founded REACH OUT Worldwide to help affected by natural disasters. Paul Walker helped everyone he could without them knowing that the help was from him. The blue-eyed angel was a blessing to us. Since his death, it has been revealed that Paul Walker had been the mystery buyer of a $9,000 engagement ring for an Iraq war veteran.

“I grew up hunting and fishing. I’ve always been into archery. I’ve always been into cars… In my family, that was just stuff we did. That’s just the way it was.“
“I wish I could be behind the wheel for every stunt.”
“My philosophy is: If you can’t have fun, there’s no sense in doing it.”
“Sometimes the hurdles aren’t really hurdled at all. They’re welcome challenges, tests.”
“The dream is to have it all. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Live this life, that life, this life, you know? You only live one time – I want to get it all in.”
“It’s been a long day without you my friend, I’m gonna tell you all about it when I see you again”.
“If one day the speed kills me, do not cry because I was smiling.“
