Rick Harrison of “Pawn Stars” Mourns the Unexpected Passing of His Son Adam

As Rick Harrison’s second son, Adam Harrison, passed away tragically, tributes to the “Pawn Stars” star and his family are flooding in.

At the age of 39, Adam passed away in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Friday, January 19. Laura Herlovich on behalf of the family has requested privacy at this trying time for them to grieve.

Herlovich disclosed to the Associated Press that an overdose of fentanyl is suspected to have caused Adam’s death.

Rick Harrison stressed the seriousness of the nation’s fentanyl problem in a statement to TMZ, calling for increased awareness and action.

For an official report, USA TODAY has contacted the Clark County Office of the Coroner/Medical Examiner and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

On their Instagram profiles, Rick Harrison and his other son, Corey Harrison, both sent emotional tributes to Adam, expressing their deep sorrow and memories of their departed family member.

Many people are thinking about Rick Harrison, the Harrison family, and their renowned company that was featured in the hit television programme “Pawn Stars” as the family deals with this tragedy.

When “Pawn Stars” debuted in 2009, Rick Harrison, his family, and the well-known Gold & Silver Pawn Shop were featured.

The store was founded in 1980 by Rick Harrison’s father, Richard Harrison, and under Rick’s leadership, it changed into its present configuration in 1988.

With up to 3,000 visitors every day, the store has become as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas Journal and Review reports that Rick Harrison is the father of six children: three daughters, Sarina, Ciana, and Marissa, and three sons, Corey, Adam, and Jake.

Though he periodically worked at the store, Adam—fondly known as “Wax”—never made an appearance on the show.

Rick’s youngest son, Jake, and his oldest son, Corey, have both made frequent appearances on the show.

Rick’s father, Richard Harrison, known as “The Old Man,” was also a central figure until his passing in 2018 at the age of 77.

Corey’s childhood friend Austin “Chumlee” Russell is another well-known character on the show. Chumlee, who has been a member of the shop since he was little and is said to be “just like a son to Rick,” has grown to be a cherished figure on the show.

“Pawn Stars” has aired 21 seasons during its 15-year existence; the most recent season will end on June 28, 2023.

A spin-off series called “Pawn Stars Do America” debuted in 2022 and followed Rick, Corey, and Chumlee as they traversed the nation in pursuit of unusual discoveries. On December 20, 2023, the second season of this spin-off concluded.

The New York Post claims that Adam’s passing won’t affect the series’ recording or broadcast, despite the family’s recent sorrow.

According to statements made by Laura Herlovich and a representative for History Channel, “Pawn Stars” will start filming again in February.

New episodes of “Pawn Stars Do America” are scheduled to premiere on February 21.

The amount of love and sympathy that the Harrison family is receiving from fans and friends during this terrible time is a testament to the profound influence both their show and personal lives have had.

The tragic consequences of the fentanyl issue are highlighted by Adam Harrison’s passing, which has led to calls for greater awareness and preventative actions.
