    According to Forbes, Williams’ net worth was an estimated $50 million. Public records real estate show that Williams’ Napa Valley mansion, which rests on 653 acres and is named Villa Sorriso, has been on the market since April for $29.9 million. Williams also leaves behind a 6,500-square-foot waterfront home in Tiburon, Calif., valued at roughly $6 million.

    The two properties have mortgages that totaled $7.25 million as of 2011. Doing some math, that means Williams left behind real estate with equity of around $25 million, subject to a Villa Sorriso sale.
