The actor, famous for playing Arnold Horshack on the classic sitcom, suffered a heart attack in his sleep.
Hollywood has lost yet another iconic TV actor. Ron Palillo, who most fans remember as Welcome Back Kotter‘s lovable buffoon Arnold Horshack, suffered a heart attack Aug. 13 in his Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., home and passed away. He is survived by his partner of 41 years, actor Joseph Gramm.
After his four-year run on Kotter ended in 1979, Ron appeared on a number of hit TV shows, including One Life to Live and Cagney & Lacey.
