Ron Palillo, best known as the question asking "Horshack" on the Classic sit-com "Welcome Back Kotter" has died at the age of 63.

He died this morning at his home in Florida, apparently from a heart attack.  He was discovered early this morning by his partner Joseph Gramm, and was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.


Horshack of course was known for throwing his hand up high, with a loud, "Ooh-ooh Mr. Kotter!"

There are only two "Sweathogs" left now. Robert Hegyes who played the character "Epstein" died earlier this year, also from a heart attack. Condolences to Vinny Bobarino, and Boom Boom Washington.
