Paul Walker fans gather in the rain to pay respect to the star

Fans of tragic actor Paul Walker gathered at the site of his death crash on Sunday (30Nov14) to pay their respects to the Fast & Furious star on the anniversary of his passing.

Walker lost his life when a Porsche he was a passenger in crashed into a pole in Valencia, California a year ago.


Hundreds of fans ignored heavy rain to gather at the site and leave flowers and photos of their hero.


Walker's Fast & Furious co-stars Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson and members of his family were among those to offer up tributes through social media and news outlets on Sunday, including Vin Diesel, who posted a touching photo of his daughter, Hania Riley, sitting on Walker's lap on the set of one of the hit films.


Diesel wrote, "He was a part of so much in my life... long personal talks with my mother or babysitting the Alpha Angel (Diesel's daughter)... he took a certain pride in being uncle Pablo... after all, we were filming a scene in FF4 (Fast & Furious) the day she was born, and he being the only one I told, encouraged me to go in and cut the umbilicle cord.


"He was an important part of my transition into fatherhood... that healthy family member, with the most positive outlook on life...


"A year ago today... a year of mourning... and his absence still leaves me speechless. We miss you Pablo..."
