The cast of History Channel's Pawn Stars are all alive and well. In March 2014, Chumlee (Austin Russell), was forced to tweet to debunk rumors that he died of heart attack. The reality star's huge weight loss has been thought to be the reason for the death hoax.
One of the show's episodes back in 2010 paid tribute to Leonard Shafer - which prompted them to burn up the internet with inquiries about who the man was. Shafer was a coin collector/dealer based in Burbank, California that the Harrison family knew. He appeared in a few episodes of the show appraising coins that were brought into the shop.
The Harrisons, father Richard, son Rick, and grandson Corey are all fine, and the Pawn Stars series is not ending due to anyone dying; Shafer was not a member of their family.
