There is no doubt that this celebrity gained much of his fame from his role as Brian O’Conner in Fast & Furious, but another greater portion of why he touched a lot of people after his passing had to do with the discovery of some of his inspiring life and human character off the screen.
He was able to create a lot of excitement in many people but also helped remind people of the importance of family and friendship.
Here are some of the reasons Paul was an inspiration and will continue to be for many years to come…
1. A Very Positive Man
Paul Walker’s attitude to life was: “Just live your life to the fullest. Laugh a lot, love, and find your true happiness.” (As his brother, Cody Walker recalled) Which means he was so positive towards life. No wonder life gave him a great adventure when he was alive!
2. A Family Man
Even though Paul had many activities to do, he was still a family man – a good brother for his siblings, and a loving father to his only child, Meadow Walker. He was even considered quitting his acting career to be a full-time father for Meadow. It’s also said that his daughter was one of the reasons he kept acting, and often taking her with him when having to travel around!
3. A Kind Humanitarian
In 2010, Paul founded a non-profit disaster relief organization called Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW) to aid people on Haiti earthquake. “I’m a doer,” he said. “Whether it was the tsunami in Sri Lanka or the earthquake in Indonesia, I was always saying, I should be there; I should be helping out.” Since then, he was helping so many people through this organization. In fact, on the day he died, he was on his way to ROWW fundraiser event for Philippines Typhoon.

4. A Down-To-Earth Actor & Loyal Friend
Paul was such a humble person, and that’s why there were many people who enjoyed working with Paul. For example, some of his co-stars in Fast & Furious franchise confessed they were devastated when he was passed away, and stated that Paul was a good friend with them both on and off-screen. FYI, Vin Diesel named his newborn daughter (born in March 2015) Pauline, after his friend – what a heart melting brotherhood!
