Pawn Stars Richard ‘Old Man’ Harrison dead at 77

If you watched the show, you no doubt will remember The Old Man!

Richard Harrison, also known as The Old Man and the head of the Pawn Stars family, died at 77 this weekend, his family announced Monday.

Harrison, a Navy veteran, first opened his famous pawn shop in the late ’80s with a $10,000 investment and used his uncanny knack for valuation to turn that into a multi-million dollar business whose day-to-day operations are now immortalized in Pawn Stars, according to Harrison’s biography on History’s website. Harrison died after a battle with Parkinson’s disease. (via Mashable)
