‘The Old Man’ of Pawn Stars Fame Dies at 77


Richard Harrison—perhaps better known as “The Old Man” of Pawn Stars fame—died of Parkinson’s disease Monday at age 77. “He will be tremendously missed by our family, the team at Gold & Silver Pawn and his many fans the world over,” his son Rick posted on Instagram. “He was my hero and I was fortunate to get a very cool ‘Old Man’ as my dad. … He lived a very full life and through the History television show Pawn Stars touched the lives of people all over, teaching them the value of loving your family, hard work and humor.” A post on the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop’s Facebook page says Harrison will be remembered “as the sometimes grumpy (always loving, however), often wisecracking, and voice of absolute reason” on the show.
