"Fast and Furious" co-star Vin Diesel posted an especially heartwarming photo of Walker with Diesel's daughter Hania Riley Vincent, as reported on Us Weekly.

Along with the photo posted on Facebook, Diesel wrote, "He was a part of so much in my life...long personal talks with my mother or babysitting the Alpha Angel...he took a certain pride in being Uncle Pablo."

Paul Walker III, Walker's father, shared with E! News, "Paul had a really good heart. I thought, 'How did I deserve such a wonderful son?"

Fans and celebrities alike have taken to their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts to pay their tributes with the hashtag #TeamPW.

The 40-year-old actor was riding along with a friend, 38-year-old Roger Rodas, when the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT Rodas was driving crashed into a concrete light pole and two trees on Hercules Street, California. The vehicle burst into flame, claiming the lives of both Rodas and Walker.

Walker had been working on "Furious 7" and his role had to be filmed to completion with the help of CGI and his brothers, Caleb and Cody. He had, however, finished working on two other movies, which were released posthumously: 2013's "Hours" and 2014's "Brick Mansions".

It opened at number one on 24 May 2013, collecting USD97 million at the weekend box office. It has since grossed USD788.7 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing instalment in the "Fast and Furious" franchise.

Walker will be seen for the final time on film in "Furious 7", to be released on 2 April 2015.
