Days after the eighth anniversary of the death of Paul Walker, his brother Cody Walker spent time with the Fast & Furious’s co-star and friend, Vin Diesel. Paul Walker‘s legacy lives on through his family, including his Fast & Furious one.
On Saturday, Dec. 4, days after the eighth anniversary of the actor’s death, his brother Cody Walker hosted his annual FuelFest music and automotive festival in Phoenix, Ariz. A portion of the proceeds from the annual event helped benefit Reach Out Worldwide, the charity Paul founded, of which Cody serves as CEO.
At Fuel fest, the latter was joined by none other than Paul’s longtime Fast & Furious co-star and friend, Vin Diesel, and fellow cast member Tyrese Gibson.
I’m here with my brother in Fuel Fest,” Vin, 54, said in an Instagram selfie video, which showed him appearing with his arm around Cody at the crowded Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park. “It is an honor to see the whole car culture being brought together by my brother Cody.”
He continued, “I’m so proud of him and I know my brother Pablo is even more proud of him,” referring to his nickname for Paul.
“Thank you all, for everybody that showed up, who showed so much support today. Thank you to my family for showing up in a big way,” Cody said, patting Vin on the shoulder. “It’s a huge deal.”
