The 'Fast and Furious' actor had studied marine biology in college and had also got to live out a life-long dream for National Geographic's Expedition Great White, where he spent days as part of a crew catching and tagging Great White sharks off the coast of Mexico, ABC reported.
He had said in an interview with fabela iMag that there are things that are more alien in the ocean than in the space and it seems like every other day, there's a new discovery.
Walker also consistently helped others in terms of crisis and even at the time of his death, he was taking part in a charity event for his nonprofit group Reach Out Worldwide, which was helping typhoon victims in Philippines.
In early 2010, he had visited Chile after a magnitude 8.8 earthquake had struck the area, triggering a tsunami and ravaging the country.
Only months later, Walker and his organization traveled to Haiti to help build shelters and provide medical help for those struck by the earthquake.
