Paul Walker Finally Laid To Rest
Paul Walker’s friends and family members attended a small and intimate funeral for the star yesterday, after he tragically died in a car accident two weeks ago.
Family members wanted the service to be extremely private and it lasted around 45 minutes, held at the Forest Lawn cemetery in Los Angeles, The Mirror reports.
Walker died on November 30 in a Los Angeles car crash after a Porsche driven by his friend Roger Rodas hit a lamppost and burst into flames. Mr Rodas, who was Walker’s financial adviser as well as owning a custom car shop with the actor, also lost his life in the crash.
