Paul Walker's father is reflecting on his son's life after the late actor died last year on Nov. 30.

Walker, the 40-year-old actor who played Brian O'Conner in the popular car racing films "Fast & Furious," died in a fatal car crash one year ago. While the late actor left behind siblings, a daughter and his father Paul Walker III, the patriarch said he still feels his late son's presence.

"I feel his presence every day. I miss talking to him a great deal," Paul's father told E! News. "He had a good heart."

The elder Paul revealed that his son did not enjoy the spotlight that came along with being a celebrity. Instead, the late actor wanted to help people and aimed to do so with his Reach Out Worldwide nonprofit foundation that worked to help aid workers during times of natural disaters.

"Paul said one time, 'I really don't like this business, but I can do a lot of good with the money I make,'" the Walker patriach told E!. "Paul just radiated love and you can't fake that... I thought, 'How did I deserve such a wonderful son?'"

After the film resumed shooting last April, the "Fast & Furious 7" Facebook page posted a message about his brothers Caleb and Cody Walker filling in for their late brother. However, the Walker brothers' father insists doing so was no easy task,

"It's a hard thing to do to step in for your brother," he said.

Paul's brother Cody Walker did more than finish up some of the late actor's scenes in the seventh installment in the "Fast & Furious" film series, but he is keeping the late actor's charitable organization alive.

Last April the "Fast & Furious 7" Facebook page posted a message about the message of the late Paul Walker's movie.

"The Fast & Furious saga is about family," reads the post. "The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans."
