Pawn Stars' Richard Benjamin Harrison, a.k.a. The Old Man, has passed away at the age of 77.
The news was announced yesterday, with Gold & Silver Pawn’s Facebook page telling everyone that he was surrounded by “loving family” when he died peacefully.
"It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge the passing of Richard Benjamin Harrison (known as ‘The Old Man’ to Pawn Stars fans the world over) this morning.
"He was surrounded by loving family this past weekend and went peacefully.
"The team at Gold & Silver Pawn and the Pawn Stars family is grieving his loss. He will be remembered as the best father, grandfather and great-grandfather you could have by his family and by fans as the sometimes grumpy (always loving, however), often wisecracking, and voice of absolute reason on the History television show ‘Pawn Stars’.
"Services are pending and the family appreciates your prayers and kind words. – Gold and Silver Pawn.”
Many people were very fond of the show, ever since its premiere in 2009, and have taken to social media to share their condolences.
Rest in peace, Richard.
