"Pawn Stars" patriarch, Richard Benjamin Harrison, who was known as "The Old Man," has died at age 77. Gold & Silver Pawn's Facebook page posted Monday that Harrison was surrounded by "loving family" this past weekend and died peacefully. The post said that fans would remember Harrison as a "sometimes grumpy (always loving, however), often wisecracking, and voice of absolute reason" on the History Channel reality show
