- Richard “Old Man” Harrison cut his son, Christopher, out of his will.
- He said that he wouldn’t be providing for Chris and his “issue.”
- The “Pawn Star” died last month.
Richard “Old Man” Harrison may have loved his sons, but he didn’t treat them equally in his will. In the original, he named his wife, JoAnne Harrison, and his children, Rick, Christopher, and Joseph, as his beneficiaries. But when he amended it in 2017, Christopher was out.
“I would like to express my love and affection for Christopher Keith Harrison,” the will says. “However, for purposes of this will, I have intentionally and with full knowledge failed to provide for him and his issue.” No word on how much the “Pawn Star” was worth or what Chris’ “issue” is.
Richard lost his battle with Parkinson’s disease last month at the age of 77.
Rick Harrison, who starred with his father on “Pawn Stars,” was put in charge of the estate as the administrator. The filing in the will does not list how much Harrison’s estate is worth.
As we reported, the 77-year-old reality star, known as the Old Man, died June 25 after a battle with Parkinson’s Disease.
At the time of his death, Rick said, “The team at Gold & Silver Pawn and the Pawn Stars family is grieving his loss. He will be remembered as the best father, grandfather and great-grandfather you could have by his family and by fans as the sometimes grumpy (always loving, however), often wisecracking, and voice of absolute reason on the History [Channel] television show ‘Pawn Stars.'”
After he died, a memorial/shrine was set up at the Las Vegas pawn shop, where fans can come and see some of his favorite personal belongings, like his trademark hat.
