After more than 30 years of playing the dominant role on A&E’s most popular reality TV series, Storage Wars, star Darrell Sheets is retiring from the locker business. Sheets is taking a step back to enjoy time with the love of his life, Patty Rich.

The 61 years old buyer was one of the oldest casting members of the show along with Dan & Laura, Jarrod Schulz & Brandi Passante, and Dave Hester. Even his son Brandon Sheets aka The Sidebet, was a regular until the 9th season of the show.

During his tenure as The Gambler on the show, Sheets has scored four Picasso paintings and the world’s most lucrative comic book collection.

Rich and Sheets met for the first time while Rich was selling her boat and believed that it was love at first sight. The couple who owns a string of vineyards and restaurants currently reside at Lake Havasu.

The Storage Wars star’s decision to settle down came to a couple of months after his serious health scare. In March 2019, Sheets revealed that he had suffered a “mild heart attack” and was diagnosed with congestive heart failure as well as lung infection.

Followed by a successful heart surgery, he thanked his then-fiancée, Romney Snyder, and his granddaughter, Zoie.

With Storage Wars 12th season concluded on January 30, 2019, we should be expecting it's 13th season arriving in the mid 2020.
