Sad news to start off the week. If you’re a fan of the cable TV show Pawn Stars, I’m sorry to pass along the news that “Old Man” has died. Richard Harrison was 77. A Navy veteran, he moved to Las Vegas to open his pawn shop in the 80s. TMZ reports he was surrounded by “those he loved,” according to his son Rick.
Rick tells TMZ “He was my hero and I was fortunate to get a very cool ‘Old Man’ as my dad.”
Busted! The Old Man came in early today to grab a donut from @PawnDonutCoffee @pawnplaza & wouldn't share! pic.twitter.com/F692BoGrqX— Rick Harrison (@GoldSilverPawn) October 23, 2015
