Robert Hogan's Net Worth At The Time Of His Death May Surprise You

Actor Robert Hogan died at the age of 87 on Thursday, May 27. As the Daily Mail reported, the actor died from pneumonia complications at his home in Maine, and, in a statement, Hogan's family revealed he had been suffering from vascular Alzheimer's disease for eight years. 

Throughout his six-decade-long career, the actor starred in more than 100 TV shows. According to Net Worth Post, Hogan made some serious dough during his 60 years on-screen, and at the time of his death in 2021, he was estimated to be worth approximately $13 million. Not too shabby. 

As The Independent reported, some of Hogan's acting credits include "The Rockford Files," "Murder, She Wrote," "The F.B.I.," "Barnaby Jones," "Gunsmoke," "77 Sunset Strip," and, more recently, HBO's "The Wire," "Peyton Place," and "Law & Order." In 1998, the actor's talents were recognized by the Outer Critics Circle Awards for his performance as the renowned attorney Clarence Darrow in "Never the Sinner."

Robert Hogan wasn't always destined for acting

According to the Daily Mail, Robert Hogan served in the U.S. Army in Korea, and, after an honorable discharge, began studying at New York University. Eventually, the actor ditched his engineering career path in favor of the arts and began attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Manhattan. In addition to his many onscreen roles, Hogan also previously appeared in theatre productions of "Never the Sinner" and "A Few Good Men" on Broadway. 

As noted in his obituary, Hogan is survived by his wife, Mary Hogan, his three children from a previous marriage — Chris, Stephen, and Jud — as well as his two grandchildren, Susanna and Liam (via The New York Times). In the actor's obituary, the Hogan family also requested that fans should make donations to the nonprofit organization DOROT in New York City or the Alzheimer's Association instead of sending flowers.
