 A makeshift memorial has been set up at the scene of the crash site, with many fans and friends gathering to mourn the loss of the actor, who passed away suddenly in a car crash Nov. 30, 2013.

Fast and the Furious co-stars Van Diesel and Tyrese Gibson have both been spotted at the site as they grieve for their friend and co-worker.

The funeral arrangement or date have not been announced by Walker's family as of yet.

Paul Walker's grief-stricken father has spoken out about his son's tragic death.

Paul Walker III, spoke to CBS2 a day after the Fast and Furious star's death.

Walker Sr broke down in tears as he told the news agency: "I'm just glad that every time I saw him, I told him I loved him. And he would say the same thing to me."

Along with his daughter Meadow, the late actor is survived by his father, mother Cheryl, brother Cody and Caleb and sister Ashley. Family and close friends of the actor had gathered at the family home to mourn his death.

Walker Sr. continued: "You can't beat friends at a time like this. His brothers are all taking it pretty hard."

He spoke of his granddaughter Meadow, recalling that his son had wanted to spend more time with her."[He told me], 'I want to take a hiatus, she's just 15, and I don't have much more time to be with her.' And then boom, he got another movie. He would say, 'I don't know what to do.'"

He continued, "His heart was so big. I was proud of him every day of his life."

Walker, 40, tragically passed away while riding in a 2005 Porsche with his friend Roger Rodas. The two were at a charity event for his organisation Reach Out WorldWide to help victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines before they decided to take the car out for a quick drive.

Meanwhile, the Westboro Baptist Church is stirring up controversy once again by announcing that its members will be picketing at the funeral for the late actor.

The Westboro Baptist Church is infamous for its vulgar pickets at funerals of fallen U.S. soldiers and other celebrities.

A number of celebrities took to Twitter to offer their condolences and express shock at the sudden death of the Fast and the Furious actor.
