Hollywood actor Paul Walker, who died in a car crash in Valencia, California on Nov 30, is being remembered as one of Hollywood's true "nice guys".

In addition to his good deeds for charitable organizations, for which he sought no publicity, details emerged last week of an incident at a Santa Barbara jewelry store several years ago where Walker anonymously forked out for a $10,000 engagement ring for a soldier and his fiancee who were also in the store at the time.

Walker had overheard the soldier, who'd recently returned from his first tour in Iraq, tell his partner that he couldn't afford the ring she had chosen and quietly got the attention of the store manager.

The Fast and The Furious actor then told the manager to "put (the ring) on my tab", before leaving the store quietly. When the couple asked who had picked up the tab, the store told them it was an anonymous gift.
