A small funeral was held on Saturday (Dec. 14) for late actor Paul Walker. Walker and his friend died tragically in a car accident two weeks ago today, after the Porsche they were in lost control, hit a tree and burst into flames.
The private memorial service was held at Los Angeles’ Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery, the same place where Michael Jackson was laid to rest. In attendance were Paul’s father Paul Walker Sr., his mother Cheryl Walker, his brothers Cody and Caleb Walker, the latter for who Walker had just served as best man at his October wedding.
It is believed that Walker’s body was cremated and interred at Forest Lawn. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office determined that Walker died from a combination of “traumatic and thermal injuries.”
Earlier this week, his family was allowed a private screening of his latest film Hours,where he plays a father struggling to keep his infant daughter alive in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The role is a big departure from Walker’s usual action films.
It is believed that his family will hold another small memorial for Walker’s close friends in the future.
Walker was 40. He is survived by his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow.
