Richard Harrison, otherwise known as "The Old Man" on History's "Pawn Stars," died on Monday following a battle of Parkinson's disease. He was 77 years old.
Richard's son, Rick Harrison, who is also a star on the show, posted on Instagram Monday confirming the news.
Rick posted in another Instagram message: "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.
"We appreciate everyone’s thoughts and prayers and ask that we are provided some privacy at this time."
