Playing Paul Walker's Dad Shares Touching, Emotional Memories Of His Late Son

It was nearly one year ago when actor Paul Walker was killed in a fatal car accident in Valencia, California. Hollywood, and the world over, mourned the loss, while the star's family is still trying to heal.

In memory of his son, the late actor's father, Paul Walker III, sat down with ET's Nancy O'Dell to talk about his loss, and pay tribute to his child.

"Well, I'm not looking forward to Thanksgiving," a solemn Paul Walker III shared with O'Dell. "He died two days after that and I guess it'll probably be that way until I'm with him. It's a sad time. We're a very close, loving family and Paul is a piece that's missing now, that we're always going to miss."

"We're very much in shock," he adds. "I'm missing him more now, the last month. It's not getting any better for me."

On November 30, 2013, Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas, a pro-am racer, drove away from a fundraising event for Paul's charity Reach Out Worldwide, with Rodas behind the wheel. Before long, the car crashed into a concrete lamp post, causing the vehicle to catch fire.

Medical examiners have stated that it appears both Paul and Roger died on impact.

Paul Walker III shared his memories of when he first heard about the accident.

"I kept getting calls. My brother says, 'Paul has been killed.' And I'm thinking somebody's got it wrong," Walker revealed. "He says, 'You need to get over to the house, everybody's there.' My feet wouldn't move."

Paul Walker III also kindly shared many home movies and baby photos of his son, and opened up about the wonderful times he and his child shared, as well as the endearing memory of the last time he saw his son in person before the crash.
