Loncar was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later. He was found in the front seat of his Rolls Royce Wraith. Loncar's death occurred just two days following his teenage daughter's memorial service. His daughter took her own life in late November.

Police are still investigating Loncar's cause of death. Medical personnel surmised heart attack was the likely cause, according to Loncar's son. In 2008 Loncar's car was struck by a fire-rescue truck, seriously injuring him.

Loncar maintained eleven law offices stretching across Texas and his TV commercials featured an illustrated 'strong arm' pounding against steel, promising potential clients he'd help them gain compensation if they'd been injured in an accident. The law firm's web site indicates they specialize in all types of vehicle accidents and various types of wrongful death cases.
