Dennis Farina Net Worth is $8 Million (at death)
It has been a little more than a year since the famous actor passed away in a hospital in Arizona after suffering a pulminatory embolism and by the time of his death Dennis Farina net worth amounted to $8 million. As far as we know, most of this fortune was inherited by his three sons: Dennis Jr, Michael and Joseph (the boys were born during the period 1970-1980, while the actor was married to Patricia Farina) and his longtime girlfriend with who has been by his side during his last days, Marianne Cahill. By the time of his death Dennis was 69 years old and we all know that there are plenty of actors who are still not only alive, but extremely active at this age. I guess that‘s what made the news about his death so shocking. But enough talking about such sad things, let‘s look at the sources of Dennis Farina net worth and his professional career.

As you might know, Dennis started acting when he was already 37 years old. Before venturing into this field, he has served in the U.S. Army and worked in Chicago Police Department’s burglary division since 1967. He quit this job only in 1985, four years after debuting with a movie Thief, as well as filming in a couple of television films: Through Naked Eyes and Hard Knox. Now I‘m not saying that 37 years is generally an old age, but starting a career in entertainment industry when you are already getting close to your 40s is a bit difficult. However, Dennis Farina net worth (as it was by the time of his death) proves that he was one of the lucky ones.
Perhaps this was due to his long-term experience working in a Chicago Police Department, perhaps due to his looks, but the fact is, Farina never had problems landing roles of police officers and mobsters (I guess that during his career in the Department Farina has seen more than enough of them and that‘s what helped him to get into the characters). Of course, those were not the only types of roles Farina has done during his career.
Now speaking about his most significant movies, I guess this would be Midnight Run, where he portrayed Bones Barboni, and Get Shorty, where he became a mobster name Jimmy Serano. His best-known roles on television was those on shows In-Laws (where he portrayed Victor Pellet), Law & Order (on these television series the actor played Det. Joe Fontana), Unsolved Mysteries (for two years, from 2008 to 2010, Farina was a narrator behind this show) and Luck, which aired on HBO. Each and every one of these shows is responsible for a major part of Dennis Farina net worth.
