Tragic actor Paul Walker's generosity will never be forgotten by one California jewellery store employee, who reveals he once secretly purchased an engagement ring for a U.S. soldier to give to his girlfriend.

Irene King, who was a sales associate at Bailey Banks and Biddle Jewelers in Santa Barbara, California claims The Fast and the Furious star anonymously bought a $10,000 sparkler for an Iraq War veteran who could not afford it.

She tells CBS Los Angeles, "She (girlfriend) saw something that she really, really liked but he said, 'Honey, I can't afford that'."

After overhearing the conversation, Walker reportedly called the manager over and asked him to put the rin "on my tab".

King says, "To do something like that for a perfect stranger is just unbelievable."

Walker perished in a fiery car crash on Saturday in California after the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT his friend Roger Rodas was driving slammed into a tree and exploded.
