Paul Walker's Father Speaks on Actor's Death: His Heart Was So Big ...

by at .  Updated at . Comments

As tributes and memories continue to pour in for Paul Walker, it's clear that The Fast and Furious star was beloved by fans, friends, family and colleagues.

No one could miss him more, or be any prouder of what he did in life, than his father, Paul Walker III, who broke down this week talking about his son.

"I'm just glad that every time I saw him, I told him I loved him," the elder Walker said, choking back tears. "And he would say the same thing to me."

In addition to his father, Walker is survived by his mother, Cheryl, brothers Cody and Caleb, sister Ashley and his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow.

He also leaves behind many grief-stricken costars and friends like Tyrese Gibson, some of whom gathered at the Walker family home this weekend.

"You can't beat friends at a time like this," Walker Sr. told CBS2 of the outpouring of support he's received. "His brothers are all taking it pretty hard."

No doubt Meadow, Walker's daughter with an ex-girlfriend, is crushed.

The teen lived with her mother in Hawaii for most of her life but had recently moved in with her famous dad, who wanted to spend more time with her.

"[He told me], 'I want to take a hiatus, she's just 15, and I don't have much more time to be with her,'" Walker Sr. recalled. "And then boom, he got another movie."

"He would say, 'I don't know what to do.'"

Just before Paul Walker died, he co-hosted an event with his non-profit organization, Reach Out Worldwide, to raise money for Philippines typhoon relief.

After attending the benefit, he and friend Roger Rodas went for a ride in a Porsche Carrera GT. Both died when the car crashed and burst into flames.

Police are investigating whether a street race was to blame, but regardless, the actor will be missed every day, just as he was cherished every day.

"His heart was so big," Walker Sr. said through tears.

"I was proud of him every day of his life."

In another interview today, Paul's dad could barely keep himself together, discussing the ongoing struggling to cope with the actor's sudden death.

Paul addressed the media outside his home, saying he's never experienced anything like this. "It's hard ... every now and then I'll really break down."

As for Walker's 15-year-old daughter, she's been taking it really hard, but thankfully she's surrounded by family and friends who love her so much.

At the end, Paul's dad tells people how the 40-year-old actor would want to be remembered, and his response is touching beyond words. Watch:
