On early Monday morning, the sad news was reported that "Pawn Stars" regular Richard Harrison has passed away. The 77-year-old was known as being the "Old Man" on the popular series. 

According to TMZ, Richard's son, Rick Harrison, was the one to report the death. 

Rick said, "'The Old Man' Harrison passed away this morning surrounded by those he loved. He will be tremendously missed by our family, the team at Gold & Silver Pawn and his many fans around the world...He was my hero and I was fortunate enough to get a very cool 'Old Man' as my dad."

At this point, Harrison's official cause of death has not been revealed. Gold & Silver Pawn posted about Harrison's passing as well. 

They said, "It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge the passing of Richard Benjamin Harrison (known as 'The Old Man' to 'Pawn Stars' fans the world over) this morning. He was surrounded by loving family this past weekend and went peacefully."

They continued, "He will be remembered as the best father, grandfather, and great-grandfather you could have by his family and by fans as sometimes grumpy (always loving, however), often wisecracking,  and voice of absolute reason on the History television show 'Pawn Stars.'"

Harrison moved with his family to Las Vegas in the 1980s and opened up Gold & Silver Pawn shop with his son. When "Pawn Stars" started in 2009, he was beloved by all. Several people are grieving Harrison's death. Below are some of the tributes that have been posted this morning.
