As the backbone of the hit TV show Pawn Stars, Richard Harrison earned the nickname of The Old Man at the age of 38, and for fans of the show as well as his friends and family members, today is a sad day as it was announced that he has passed away early this morning at age 77. He had a multi-year battle with Parkinson’s disease and had made his last appearance on the show years ago. Harrison was the co-owner of the World Famous Gold and Silver Pawn Shop, located on Las Vegas Blvd. along with his son Rick Harrison after his 20-year career in the Navy. They began shooting their TV show about the pawn shop in 2009, and eventually, it became a smash hit. The show was so popular, in fact, that they constantly had lines around the block of people wanting to get into the store that they’ve seen on TV. A few years ago, they bought the lot next to their store and began construction on Pawn Plaza, an entire complex complete with restaurants, bars, and shops all themed after the store and show. The legacy of Mr. Harrison will continue to live on in the TV show, the pawn shop, and the new Pawn Plaza.
