“If you can’t have fun, there’s no sense in doing it.”
Paul Walker (12 September 1973 – 30 November 2013)

RIP, man. You’ll be missed.

For those interested, reports of the crash sourced from Wikipedia:
On November 30, 2013, at approximately 3:30 PM (PST), Walker and Roger Rodas, age 38, left an event for Walker’s charity Reach Out Worldwide for victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Shortly after leaving in Rodas’ red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, the driver lost control and crashed into a light pole and tree in Valencia, Santa Clarita, California, and the vehicle burst into flames. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department declared the two dead at the scene. Coverage was first reported after Walker’s publicist, Ame van Iden, confirmed early reports of his death. Rodas became friends with Walker after meeting at a race track. He became his financial advisor in 2007 and helped to establish Reach Out Worldwide. Rodas was the CEO of Always Evolving, a performance shop for high-end vehicles owned by Walker, located in Valencia.The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office stated that speed was a factor in the crash. Burned rubber and doughnut marks were found in figure 8 patterns on the road near the crash site, but it was not clear to officials if these were related to the crash.
