Rest In Peace - Robert Hegyes : Juan Epstein "Welcome Back, Kotter" Star

"Welcome Back Kotter" actor Robert Hegyes has died. According to New Jersey's The Star-Ledger, he was 60 years old.
The Star-Ledger reports he suffered an apparent heart attack in his New Jersey home on Thursday morning.

Hegyes is best known for playing Juan Epstein on "Welcome Back Kotter," the 1970s sitcom, which starred John Travolta and Gabe Kaplan. He appeared in all four seasons of the sitcom and joined most of his fellow Sweathogs at the "Welcome Back Kotter" reunion held at the 2011 TV Land Awards.

This is still one of my all time favorite shows!

Please excuse Juan for his lateness (fill in you favorite reason) .. signed Epstein's Mother

RIP Brutha Sweathog
RIP Juan
