PAUL WALKER'S GENEROUS SECRET GIFT

by Nick Kasey posted Dec 6 2013 2:14PM

10 years ago, Paul Walker secretly bought an Iraqi vet's fiancee a $10,000 engagement ring.

He walked into Bailey Banks and Biddle Jewelers in Santa Barbara, Ca. and saw the couple looking through engagement rings. He overheard the cost of the ring and that it was too expensive for them.

The sales associate, Irene King, said "It was such a heartwarming story." He asked her to put their ring on his tab and to keep his identity a secret.

Kyle Upham, the Iraqi Vet, was preparing for a second tour in Iraq at the time. 

They kept the secret for 10 years, but wanted to share the story of his generosity since his passing. Irene King said, "His real life speaks volumes of his character. He really did put his money where his mouth is, and did good for this world."
