After an ongoing battle with Parkinson’s Disease, “Pawn Stars'” Old Man Richard Harrison passed away at the age of 77. 

Richard’s son, Rick, shared the news of his passing on Instagram in an emotional post, saying: 

“Richard Benjamin ‘The Old Man’ Harrison passed away this morning surrounded by those he loved. He will be tremendously missed by our family, the team at Gold & Silver Pawn and his many fans the world over. He was my hero and I was fortunate to get a very cool ‘Old Man’ as my dad. That I got to share him with so many others and they got to see what a great family man he was is something I am grateful to have experienced with him,” Rick shared in an Instagram post.

“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. We appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers and ask that we are provided some privacy at this time.”
