Paul Walker to be cremated

12 December 2013, 14:17

Los Angeles - Paul Walker's body will reportedly be cremated.

The late Fast & Furious star, who tragically lost his life in a blaze when a car he was travelling in crashed into a pole on 30 November, will be laid to rest this weekend when his ashes are interred at Hollywood's Forest Lawn Memorial Park, according to E! News.

Paul's remains were released to his family on Tuesday and they have been busy preparing his funeral, which is expected to take place this week with just family in attendance.

However, there will be another private memorial service for friends and family - which will likely include his Fast & Furious co-stars - at an undisclosed location.

Paul and his pal Roger Rodas were caught in a fiery car crash in Santa Clarita, California, last month and their deaths have since been ruled an accident by a coroner.

An unofficial memorial rally was staged on Sunday in the area where the pair tragically lost their lives.

The actor's friends and family gathered at the crash site just days earlier on 2 December to pay their respects also.

Meanwhile, Paul's Jiu-Jitsu teacher Ricardo Miller, who guided him in the combat sport for nine years while working on the Fast & Furious films, has commemorated his late friend by bestowing him with an honorary black belt.

He wrote on his official website: "Paul was determined to become a black belt. He said, 'I will get my black belt, even if I need to get it in my coffin.' Now in the wake of his death, I would like to reward Paul Walker the black belt that he wanted so much during his life."
