In addition to being a very committed actor, one who was mainly known for his blockbuster popcorn movies but who threw himself 100-percent into his films and had designs on doing more dramatic roles, Walker was someone whose goal in life was to give back.
Walker wasn’t just the celebrity face of the organization, either.
While ROWW continues its good works, Walker’s cinematic legacy will live on as well.
Fast 8 already has a release date of April 14, 2017, and Vin Diesel-who named his daughter Pauline in honor of his late friend-has said that Walker is one of the main reasons that another FF movie is in the works.
While her family has rallied around her to make sure that she’s been allowed to live as private a life as possible since her dad’s death, Meadow quietly established the Paul Walker Foundation on what would have been his 42nd birthday, Sept. 12, 2015, to benefit another cause close to the actor’s heart, ocean conservation.
That’s why loved ones, co-stars and fans who continue to pay tribute to Walker ensure that those memories will live on.
Paul Walker was also a man whose focus stretched far beyond Hollywood, and his family and friends are still working on expanding that vision, to best way to honor the memory of someone who had dedicated all the time he could to helping others.
