Family And Friends To Honour Late Paul Walker On 42nd Birthday


Paul Walker

Paul Walker would have been 42 today.But while the loss is still palpable following his death in a car crash in 2013, when he was only 40, his family, friends and fans continue to do their best to keep the actor-activist alive in their hearts and make sure that they carry on the good work that was so important to him.

“We’re going to keep it low-key for Paul’s birthday,” brother Cody Walker, who did stand-in work for Furious 7 after Paul died and is on the big screen next in USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage, tells E! News. “Hang out with the family and close friends, hopefully at the beach. Paul was a low-key kind of guy and loved the ocean, so it’s pretty fitting.”

Also pretty fitting—the tribute that kicked off, literally, at dawn.

For the second year in a row, fans around the world are posting pictures of the sunrise (and, at day’s end, they’ll post the sunset) in honor of Paul. About 3,000 photos were shared from 90 countries and every continent last year, according to friend Jesse Brisendine, who deemed it International Sunrise and Sunset Around the World Day.

“They are symbols of new life that continues to go on,” Brisendine told us, recalling how he went to watch the sunrise in Santa Barbara, Calif., the morning after Paul died in a car crash.
“It was such a beautiful sunrise that day,” the 30-year-old life coach said. “It was one of those mornings that were so still. Birds and people were starting to wake up and I was thinking how life was standing still for me and I was watching it still move on and continue to turn, and this meant to me a symbol of life that keeps going forward and continues.”The goal is to not only remember Paul but raise awareness and funds for the late actor’s disaster relief organization, Reach Out World Wide (ROWW), which Brisendine helped start. ROWW helps get emergency aid workers to disaster sites, providing medical aide, food, shelter, clothing—”whatever the need is,” he said.
