Paul Walker’s Father Says Life After Son’s Death Is “Not Getting Any Better”

For Paul Walker‘s father, time does not heal all wounds. Paul Walker III opened up to Entertainment Tonight in a new interview, reflecting on his late son as the anniversary of his death approaches.

“I’m not looking forward to Thanksgiving,” Walker III told ET‘s Nancy O’Dell. “He died two days after that and I guess it’ll probably be that way until I’m with him. It’s a sad time. We’re a very close, loving family and Paul is a piece that’s missing now, that we’re always going to miss.”

The beloved actor passed away on Nov. 30, 2013 at the age of 40. Walker was killed in a fatal car accident in Santa Clarita, Calif.

“I’m missing him more now, the last month,” the star’s father said just weeks before the one-year anniversary of Walker’s death. “It’s not getting any better for me.”

Twelve months later, Walker III is reflecting on the heartbreaking time. He told ET that his family informed him of his son’s death. 

“I kept getting calls,” the father of five said. “My brother says, ‘Paul has been killed.’ I’m thinking somebody’s got it wrong. He says, ‘You need to get over to the house, everybody’s there.’ My feet wouldn’t move.”

The former Fast & Furious star had a touching final interaction with his father before his untimely death. 

“The last time I saw him, he gave me a kiss on the cheek, I gave him one. I tell him I loved him,” Walker III said. “It’s a great memory.”
