Onscreen and off, Paul Walker loved the adrenaline rush of racing cars. But some of his time behind the wheel was quieter – and even closer to his heart.
Driving his daughter, Meadow Rain, to school in the morning, "I just shut up, sit back and stay quiet," he told PEOPLE in 2011, when she was about to turn 13. "She opens up and reveals a whole lot. The trick is to not ask questions, just listen. I'm figuring it out."
Walker, who died in a car crash on Saturday, was a proud and devoted father to Meadow, who turned 15 in November. Tragically, witnesses say, she was on hand to support her dad at his Reach Out Worldwide charity car show in Santa Clarita, Calif., when Walker and friend Roger Rodas left for a spin in a Porsche Carrera GT and never came back.
