Loggia had a net worth of $10 million at the time of his death but no amount of money can replace the memories he leaves behind. He lives forever in his movies and television work. One note of interest; in 2012, Loggia portrayed Saint Peter during his final imprisonment in The Apostle Peter and the Last Supper. Although he wasn’t working the pearly gates, this was his last acting role.
