September 12, 1973 – November 30, 2013 'The Fast and the Furious' star Paul Walker was killed in a horrific car crash in Valenica, CA on Saturday. Walker's friend Roger Rodas was driving a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT when he lost control, striking trees and a light pole. The two had just left an event for Walker's charity Reach Out Worldwide benefiting victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Walker leaves behind 15-year-old daughter, Meadow. Rest in Peace, Paul and Roger.

Paul Walker began his acting career at 2-years-old in a Pampers Diapers commercial but his breakthrough role was as Lance Harbor in 1999’s Varsity Blues. His portrayal of Brian O’Connor in popular The Fast and the Furious film franchise brought him international fame. Walker was set to wrap up the final scenes of Fast and Furious 7 in Atlanta, Georgia. Since his death, the cast and crew have decided to delay finishing the film which was set to be released in July 2014. His films Hours and Brick Mansions will be released posthumously.

Besides acting, Walker was highly involved in charitable causes and founded the charity Reaching Out Worldwide which provides humanitarian services. He also enjoyed marine biology and studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

You will be greatly missed, Paul.
