His brother, in an emotional tribute to the late actor who was a movie star and was killed in a car accident: Ten years ago, Hollywood actor Paul Walker tragically passed away in a car accident. Now, a decade after the tragic event, his brother Cody pays a touching tribute to his departed sibling.
Cody, Paul's younger brother, and his wife Felicia decided to name their newborn son 'Paul' in honor of the late brother. The baby's full name is Paul Bart Walker, and he was born about a month ago.
In an interview with the American media, Cody said, "In November, it will be ten years since we lost my brother Paul, and I felt it was simply the right time." He further added and shared, "My brother, Paul, was Paul William Walker IV, and this name has been in our family for four generations. Within the family, they called him 'Little Paul' or 'Paul 4,' even though he quickly surpassed our father's height. It was essential to me that this name continues on."
Paul Walker, the successful movie actor, passed away on November 30, 2013, when the Porsche he was riding in crashed into a lamppost and caught fire. Walker was killed while the filming of 'Furious 7' was still ongoing, and the movie paid tribute to the beloved actor, dedicating the film to his memory.
As you may recall, during the filming of the seventh movie, two of Paul's brothers, Cody and Caleb, participated, and technology was used to superimpose Paul's face on theirs, thus keeping his character alive.
