Paul Walker purchased an engagement ring for a soldier. The late Into the Blue star generosity will never be forgotten by one California jewelry store employee, he speaks out about how Walker secretly bought the U.S. soldier the ring to give to his girlfriend.
Irene King, who was a sales associate at Bailey Banks and Biddle Jewelers in Santa Barbara, California claims The Fast and the Furious star anonymously bought a $10,000 sparkler for an Iraq War veteran who could not afford it.
She tells CBS Los Angeles,
“She (girlfriend) saw something that she really, really liked but he said, ‘Honey, I can’t afford that’.”
After overhearing the conversation, Walker reportedly called the manager over and asked him to put the ring “on my tab”.
“To do something like that for a perfect stranger is just unbelievable.”
Walker sadly died in a fiery car crash on Saturday in California with his friend Roger Rodas, who was driving the car that slammed into a tree and exploded.
