Ooh Ooh Oooooh --- Mr. Kotter!!!! Horshack Is Dead
« on: August 14, 2012, 12:55:21 PM »
Ron Palillo, best known as mouthy classroom goofball Arnold Horshack on the 1970s TV series Welcome Back, Kotter, died at his Palm Beach Gardens home early this morning.

Palillo is survived by his partner of 41 years, Joseph Gramm, a retired actor.

Yes, another baby boomer is gone, we know people are generally living longer but we have had our fair share of folks going in their 50's and 60's, too young and scary to us members of that generation.  RIP Ron.

I loved the show Welcome Back Kotter.

And, talk about a long term relationship--41 years with his partner!  Wonderful.

I noticed none of the news outlets I watched mentioned he was survived by his partner.  If he was out, I found that odd.  But, I also found it odd the NBC commentators didn't mention George Michael was now performing, after being very ill and close to death.  If any of the other performers had broken a leg, I think they would have mentioned they were back performing after a leg break.  Perhaps that was due to the AIDS speculation, but not mentioning a partner of 41 years was inconsiderate, imho.
