committed to keeping Paul Walker’s memory alive. Cody Walker, Paul’s brother, recently hosted the FuelFest festival in Phoenix, Arizona, which brought together car and music enthusiasts.

At the yearly FuelFest celebration in Phoenix, Arizona, Cody Walker and Vin Diesel shared an embrace.
FuelFest took place shortly after the eighth anniversary of Paul Walker’s tragic death in a car crash in Southern California. Even those who couldn’t attend the event got a glimpse of the heartwarming reunion of fans through photos and videos posted on Instagram. One of the most touching moments captured was Cody and Vin’s (born Mark Sinclair) emotional embrace, which is sure to tug at anyone’s heartstrings. Cody wrote in the caption of the picture that shows them from behind, both dressed in black, “8 years later. Thank you #Phoenix @fuelfest.” Vin Diesel, his older brother’s co-star, was front and center in the image, showing off his bulging biceps in a sleeveless black tee and fashionable sunglasses.
Cody Walker, aged 33, was thrilled with the outcome of FuelFest, a charitable event that supports Reach Out Worldwide. This organization was founded by Cody’s late brother, Paul, and he now holds the position of CEO. The event donates a portion of its profits to this noble cause.
Diesel, aged 54, expressed his admiration for Cody’s efforts in organizing FuelFest, which was also supported by Tyrese Gibson, another cast member of Furious. The occasion was also a time to remember Paul Walker, who died eight years ago in a car crash while leaving a charity event with Roger Rodas. Tyrese posted on Instagram Stories that the event brought the family together. A part of the funds raised from FuelFest will go to Reach Out Worldwide, the charity organization established by Paul and now managed by Cody. Vin congratulated his brother Cody, and stated that he was proud of him. He also added that Pablo (Paul Walker) would have been proud too. It was an emotional and heartwarming moment for everyone involved.
Affection and admiration: Diesel expressed his joy towards Cody’s achievements and mentioned that his brother Paul Walker would be even prouder. The two became close friends on the set of Fast & Furious movies since 2001. Love always.
Cody expressed his gratitude for the overwhelming support shown at FuelFest, where his late brother Paul Walker’s car collection was showcased. Tyrese Gibson, another co-star from the Fast and Furious franchise, was present to show his support as well. Cody thanked his family for showing up and making it a big deal. Paul passed away at the age of 40, leaving behind unfinished scenes for Furious 7. To complete the film, Cody and Caleb Walker, who is now 44, took on Paul’s role as Brian O’Conner. They acted as doubles and provided voiceovers, with the help of other body and stunt doubles as well as CGI, to finish the movie which was released in 2015. The next installment of the franchise, Fast & Furious 10, is set to premiere in 2023.
In a touching display of brotherly love, Cody and Caleb Walker took on the role of Brian O’Connor in Furious 7 after the tragic car accident that claimed the life of their brother, Paul Walker, on November 30, 2013, in Valencia, California.
