'Welcome Back, Kotter' actor Ron Palillo dies at 63, is survived by longtime partner actor Joe Gramm

From Jose Lambiet's Gossip Extra:

Actor Ron Palillo, who played goofball Horshack opposite a young John Travolta in the 1970s sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter, died suddenly early this morning at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center.

He was 63.

Palillo moved to the local gated community of Mirasol three years ago when he accepted an acting teacher’s job at the G-Star School of the Arts, a West Palm Beach charter school for children interested in television and movies.

He lived with a long-time life partner, retired actor Joe Gramm, who called 911 early this morning when Palillo experienced difficulties breathing. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance and was pronounced dead about 4:30 a.m.
