Paul Walker’s Dad Reveals Last Conversation With Son
“The last conversation we had, I sat there, I looked at him and I said, ‘You know, I love you very much. I love all of you. And we’re all very, very close. If anything was to happen to anybody in this family, it would be a rough deal,'” Paul’s father told E! News. “I said, ‘Promise me, no more daredevil stuff.’ I said, ‘If in your heart, you say, I can do this, then by all means, do it. If your mind says, maybe not. Then don’t.’ I looked at him, I said, ‘Will you promise me that?'”
And Paul agreed, his father said. He added that while his son, 40, only said “OK” in response to his plea, he knew he understood.
“You know a lot of us, sometimes we make promises and get caught up in the moment and stuff like that, but I can tell I got to him,” his dad added. “I can tell that I was very serious. Sometimes sons think of their fathers and their grandfathers as these bigger than life people.”

Paul Sr. also told E! that he hadn’t yet sat down with Paul’s daughter Meadow Walker, 15, but knew it was going to be a tough situation.
“She’s so sweet and beautiful,” he raved. “I’m gonna have a real hard time talking with Meadow. I really am. It’s gonna be a tough deal. Gonna be real rough.”
As for Paul, he loved his family more than anything. In the video of the interview we see Paul’s nephew Wes in the background whose actually crying throughout its entirety.
“[Paul] just liked being around the family, he really did,” he said. “Any young person. If somebody come by, they’d look at him and he’d say, ‘Hey, come on up here. What’s your name? Are these your kids?’ Especially if they had a kid with him.”
