In 2004, one couple from Victorville was receiving more than just happy wishes from a stranger who looked familiar when they were shopping for an engagement ring at a posh diamond store in Santa Barbara.
While newlyweds Kyle and Kristen Upham were looking at the options at the store, they saw that there was another young guy there with them, however, they didn’t give him any attention.
Kyle came to the realization that the other shopper was none other than Paul Walker after they discussed their different careers and the stranger revealed that he worked in the movie industry.
The actor made the purchase of the ring, which may have been motivated by Kyle’s service as he couple had made a casual reference to Kyle’s deployments, but they were completely unaware of the effect that it would have on Walker.
After their lighthearted conversation, the three of them just went their own ways and shortly after that, the Uphams walked out of the shop without purchasing anything. But then employee went after them and gave them the gift.
When the Uphams inquired as to who had bought the costly ring for them, the employees would not provide any information about it.
