Francis Wayne Sinatra was born on 10 January 1944, in Jersey City, New Jersey, USA, and was a conductor, singer and songwriter, but perhaps best known for being the son of the famous singer and actor, Frank Sinatra. He was able to establish himself with a music career even carrying his father’s name, which helped raise his net worth to where it was.

How rich was Frank Sinatra Jr.? As of early-2016, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $50 million, mostly earned through a successful music career. He spent a lot of time on the road and was really passionate about his career, which helped raise his wealth to where it was prior to his death.

Frank Sinatra, Jr. Net Worth $50 Million

During his childhood, Frank Jr. barely saw his father as the popular singer would often be working or on the road. Even so, in his early years Frank Jr. wanted to become a songwriter and pianist. During December 1963, at the age of 19, Frank Jr was kidnapped by three criminals who demanded a ransom of $240,000. Frank Jr was released two days later when Frank Sinatra Sr. paid the ransom. The three kidnappers were soon caught and were given long prison sentences, but were all released early. During this period, many speculated on whether or not the events were just a publicity stunt to promote the popular singer’s son, as Sinatra Sr. was filming “Robin and the Seven Hoods” at the time the kidnapping happened. While shooting he also received news of President Kennedy’s assassination, which made him almost cancel the film altogether. The kidnapping event also made Francis’ father always carry dimes around him, which was how he communicated with the kidnappers via payphone. He was even buried with a few dimes in his pocket.

During this period, Sinatra Jr. was already performing in clubs and venues as a part of Sam Donahue’s band, and was also learning about the music industry through Duke Ellington. Sinatra Jr. played throughout the year, travelling to various locations and performing there. Soon, he earned opportunities to become a part of several shows, including “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour”, and “The Dean Martin Show”. Like his father, he was also given acting opportunities, in shows like “A Man Called Adam” and “Clinic on 18th Street”. By 1988, Frank Jr. took a break from his career to become his father’s musical director and conductor, as according to Sinatra Sr. he was the only person he could trust with the role.

In 1989, Francis continued to perform and act, usually singing in the television opportunities that were given to him. He performed in “Late Night with David Letterman” and was given a chance to become part of “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”, which he declined. In an episode of “Family Guy”, he sang the theme song alongside the series’ characters Stewie and Brian. One of his later album releases was entitled “That Face!”

For his personal life, Frank Jr. was married to Cynthia McMurray during 1998 but divorced by the year 2000. He has two children, one of whom he first declined that he was the father of, but eventually declared before the court that he was. He’s had a few paternity suits and also battled with prostate cancer during 2006. He unexpectedly passed away in March 2016, and reports state that he had cardiac arrest while on tour in Florida.
