If you are a hardcore ‘Pawns Stars’ fan, you must remember every member of the show. The show includes a wide array of wildcard characters in the show but one stands out, and that is none other than Richard Benjamin Harrison or, as people rather recognize him, the old man from ‘Pawn Stars.’
So where is the older man now, because he is no longer seen on the show?
Is he still in Pawn Stars, or did something tragic happen to him, like god forbid his death? Find out right here about the truth of where he is now.
Is the old man still on Pawn Stars? Is He Dead? His Death Rumors were all over the internet before he Passed away.
Coming right to the most important and concerning part, there seem to be a lot of unverified sources spreading the news of the death of ‘the old man’ or as he is also known, Richard Benjamin Harrison.
It all started with a Facebook page titled RIP “old man” Harrison. The page also featured its profile picture as Richard Harrison with a RIP 1941 to 2017.
Other than that, the page did not specifically post much about the old man or ‘Pawn Stars.’
It should not have meant much, but somehow it did lead to several people questioning whether the old man was dead. But like many other independent researchers who replied to these death questions as simply being a hoax, Richard is still alive and well. True, he does not appear on ‘Pawn Stars’ anymore, but that does not mean he is dead.
Tomorrow's Monday. The Old Man isn't happy about it. #PawnStars
So what happened to him? The true fans of ‘Pawn Stars’ may already know this, but Richard Harrison is already retired from his family business.
It all happened when Richard suddenly suffered a stroke some years back and since then has retired.
Although he is retired, he is still the first to arrive at the family store and has occasional appearances on the show.
What Happened to the Old Man from Pawn Stars? (Before June 2nd, 2017)
Since Richard is not dead but still does not appear in ‘Pawn Stars’, what is he up to then? The question is mostly already answered.
As we have already mentioned, Richard Harrison is just absent from the ‘Pawn Stars’ show, but in reality, he still frequently visits the store.
It must be hard leaving a store he founded and has run alongside his two next generations with son Rick Harrison and grandson Corey Harrison.
He sometimes appears on the show and is said to be the first man to arrive in their store ‘Gold and Silver Pawn Shop.’
We do not have any current updates on the old man because he neither seems to like going out in public nor is he exclusive on social media.
We heard from him last time during the tragic Las Vegas shooting.
Richard’s pawn shop is also located in the sin city and troubled by the news he spoke out saying about the evil in the world and complimented the police for handling the situation.
He also snapped at politicians for making it as an object of slandering each other.
So now you know what happened to the Old Man from Pawn Stars.
