Paul Walker's passing resulted in touching tributes from colleagues, fans and Universal Pictures.
The studio behind the 'Fast & Furious' franchise recognized the passing of Paul Walker on Wednesday by posting a video tribute to the 'Fast & Furious' YouTube channel. "In Loving Memory" features scenes from all five franchise films in which the actor appeared, and features P. Diddy's "Coming Home" with Skylar Grey. The montage concludes with a toast from Vin Diesel in his 'Fast' character.
The post on YouTube also relays a message from Walker's family that expresses their appreciation for the outpouring of love from both friends and fans. They also asked that in lieu of gifts donations be made to Walker's charity, Reach Out Worldwide.
On Tuesday Universal announced it would also donate a percentage of proceeds from the franchise's latest film, out on DVD December 10, to Reach Out Worldwide. Created in the wake of 2010's devastating earthquake in Haiti, the charity connects a network of professionals with first responder skills to help relief efforts during natural disasters.
Universal has indefinitely suspended production on “Fast & Furious 7″ which was reportedly about half-way through production at the time of Walker's death. Studio considerations include scrapping the film or adapting it accordingly to account for Walker's absence.
Paul Walker was killed on Saturday in an accident that also killed his business associate and fellow race car enthusiast, Roger Rodas. The LA County coroner officially confirmed on Wednesday that both deaths were due to blunt force and thermal trauma.
