William Lucking's Net Worth At The Time Of His Death May Surprise You

Hollywood has lost another one of their own. William Lucking, best known for portraying Piermont "Piney" Winston on the wildly popular FX series "Sons of Anarchy," died on October 18 at his home in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to Deadline. He was 80 years old, and the cause of his death is currently unknown.

"Although William often played toughs and strongmen, in his actual life he was an elegant man with a brilliant intellect who loved to argue about politics and current affairs, discuss philosophy and physics, and assert fine-pointed opinions about art and poetry," his wife, Sigrid Lucking, said in an obituary posted to Facebook on November 4.

Fans and friends of the actor took to social media to mourn his death, with one fan writing, "William Lucking was definitely a giant among men and an amazing person who will be greatly missed," while "Sons of Anarchy" actress Kristen Renton, who played Ima Tite for 12 episodes in 2012, also issued her condolences upon learning that her co-star had died. "RIP sir..... it was such an honor to work with you on ⁦@SonsofAnarchy⁩. You had a presence unlike any other. You will truly be missed," she wrote on Twitter.

William Lucking was a millionaire at the time of his death

According to Idol Net Worth, William Lucking was worth around $1.6 million at the time of his death. However, Net Worth Post estimates Lucking's net worth at the time of his death to be around $1.2 million, so his overall net worth likely falls somewhere in between that range.

Lucking's impressive net worth shouldn't come as much of a surprise to those who are familiar with his acting career, as he has a whopping 161 acting credits to his name (via IMDb). His first credited role was in an episode of the television series "Ironside" in 1968. Throughout the '70s and '80s, he appeared in a slew of television series, including "The Partridge Family," "Shannon," "The A-Team," "Outlaws," and "Napoleon and Josephine: A Love Story."

Lucking also had notable roles in "Murder, She Wrote," "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," "Switched At Birth," and "Murder in the First," which was his last credited acting role in 2014. He also had memorable guest-starring appearances on "The Mentalist" and "JAG," and had a role in the award-winning Julia Roberts film "Erin Brockovich" (via IMDb). However, he'll likely be best remembered by fans for playing the formidable Piney on "Sons of Anarchy."
