    Default Ron "Horshack" Palillo, from "Welcome Back, Kotter," dies at 63

    Ron Palillo Dead at 63 'Welcome Back, Kotter' Star Dies from Heart Attack

    Exclusive Details


    Ron Palillo -- the actor who played Horshack on "Welcome Back, Kotter" -- died this morning at his home near Palm Beach from an apparent heart attack ... this according to someone close to the actor.

    We're told Palillo was found by his partner of many years Joseph Gramm around 4:00 AM. Gramm called an ambulance and Palillo was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    We're told the heart attack was very unexpected. Palillo was 63.

    Palillo was known for calling out, "Ooh ooh ooh, Mr. Kotter" as one of the Sweathogs on the show ... which he appeared on with John Travolta from 1975 to 1979.

    After Kotter, Palillo appeared in "Laverne & Shirley" and voiced a character on the Disney cartoon, "Darkwing Duck."

    Palillo's "Kotter" co-star Robert Hegyes -- who played Epstein -- passed away earlier this year after suffering a heart attack.

    NOOOOOO! Dangit! This is too sad. Barbarino and Freddy "Boom Boom" Washington better watch their backs. On a side note, Horshack seriously had to be David Lee Roth's long-lost brother.

    Jesus, yes! These days people are either ancient (like Ernest Borgnine and Celeste Holm) when they go or way too young, like these guys.

    All relatively young ex co-stars of John Travolta (2 from welcome back Kotter and 2 of Grease, I believe in the past year or two) all around 60.

    I'm seriously sad. I was doing an impersonation of him last Friday at work. He was always my favorite Sweat Hog.

    He had the best laugh. I swear Eddie Murphy stole his laugh from him.

    This probably is going to be neglected in all the news stories, but Ron Palillo actually did a great public service a few years ago - he punched Dustin Diamond in the face a few times in a celebrity boxing match.
