Paul Walker Leaves Everything To His Daughter

PaulwalkerRecords indicate the sole beneficiary of actor Paul Walker's 23 million dollar estate is his 15-year-old daughter. Walker's will was drafted in 2001 the same year as the first "Fast and Furious" movie. The will showed Walker’s father, Paul William Walker III, has authority to sell and invest property and his mother, Cheryl Ann Walker, his daughter's  guardian and will look after her portion of the estate until she reaches maturity. According to court documents, most of his assets came from unspecified property worth 8 million dollars and a 10 million dollar home. Paul Walker passed on November 30, 2013 in a car crash in Los Angeles. He was half way done with shooting the seventh "Fast and Furious" which was scheduled to come out April 2015.
