Paul Walker’s Brother Names Son After Him 10 Years Since His Tragic Passing

10 months ago

Those we’ve lost remain with us, alive in our memories, the places we go, and the people we hold dear. Paul Walker’s passing left the world in shock, deeply impacting his fans, the closest friend Vin Diesel, and above all, his inseparable brother Cody. On the solemn occasion of the 10th anniversary of his departure, Cody has chosen to offer the most heartfelt tribute to Paul, ensuring that his memory lives on and is never forgotten.

His lookalike brothers, who never miss a chance to honor him.

Paul Walker’s legacy as an iconic figure in The Fast & The Furious franchise is indelible. Renowned for his portrayal of Brian O’Conner, he starred in the first five of six films before his life was cut short. On November 30, 2013, at 40, Paul was involved in a fatal car accident. At the time, he was in the midst of filming Fast & Furious 7, leaving the producers in a quandary as they grappled with how to proceed.

Luckily, Paul’s younger brothers, Caleb and Cody, came forward to help. They served as body doubles to finish the remaining scenes, ensuring a seamless portrayal that paid tribute to his character and mostly to their late brother. The movie director said, “It was a whole different world for them, and I think they had a newfound respect for what their brother did. I was very grateful to have the family involved.”

Paul’s passing had an immense emotional impact on his brothers, Caleb and Cody. However, they remain dedicated to preserving his enduring legacy even years later. While Caleb chose a different path, Cody found solace in following his brother’s acting journey. His involvement in the industry serves a greater purpose—to carry forward Paul’s philanthropic endeavor, Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW), founded in 2010.

“Paul’s legacy was to be good,” Cody claimed. “His mission was to be a good person and help others, and that’s certainly what Reach Out WorldWide continues to do to this day.” He also added, “His legacy is alive and well.”

Cody paid a heartfelt and unique tribute to his late brother.

Since August 2015, Cody has been joyfully married to his wife, Felicia. Together, Cody and Felicia are blessed with two children, a baby girl, Remi Rogue, followed by the arrival of their son, Colt Knox.

However, on April 30, Cody welcomed his latest son. In a deeply touching tribute, Cody Walker named his newborn child a heartfelt homage to his beloved sibling. This poignant gesture comes nearly a decade after Paul’s tragic passing, serving as a testament to Cody’s enduring love and admiration for his brother.

Cody shares that both he and his brother, Caleb, have completed their respective journeys of expanding their families. Recalling their late brother, Cody reveals the significance behind their decision to carry on his name.

By choosing to pass on the cherished name to their own children, Cody and Caleb ensure that the essence of their beloved brother lives on through the generations. “My brother, Paul, was Paul William Walker IV, and that name goes back four generations,” says Cody. “Within the family, he went by ‘little Paul’ or ‘Paul 4,’ even though he quickly outgrew our father in height. It was important to me to have that name carry on.”

He further expresses the deep-rooted importance of preserving their brother’s name even after all these years. “This November will mark 10 years since we lost my brother, Paul, and I just felt now was the appropriate time,” says Cody.

After nearly 10 years, his dear ones still hold his memory close to their hearts.

As the 10th anniversary of his passing approaches, it is not only his brother who pays tribute to Paul Walker but also the countless individuals who continue to cherish his memory. Recently, a significant event unfolded with the release of Fast and Furious X, where Meadow, Paul Walker’s daughter, made a special cameo appearance.

Being born into the Fast Family fills her with immense pride, and she considers it a tremendous privilege to honor her father’s enduring legacy through her involvement in the franchise. And as his dearest friend, Vin Diesel, has said, “Paul would be proud of her”.

In a heartfelt tribute to his late friend and co-star, Vin Diesel expressed that Fast X embodies the essence of what Paul envisioned for the franchise. It culminates in their shared passion, commitment, and dedication to delivering thrilling action and heartfelt storytelling.

According to Vin, this film is a realization of Paul Walker’s dream, and his words offer a poignant reminder that Paul’s presence and impact are still keenly felt within the Fast and Furious universe.

The bond between brothers endures beyond life, unbreakable and unwavering. The special friendship between Vin and Paul is no exception. Since Paul’s passing, Vin Diesel has made it his mission to continuously celebrate and honor their friendship, proving its unyielding strength. Their connection remains an eternal testament to the power of true brotherhood.
