He was famous for his role in “Welcome Back, Kotter,”  in which he costarred with John Travolta and Robert Hegyes, who played “Sweathog." Hegyes passed away earlier this year in January. Palillo was also known for having written the play, “The Lost Boy." He performed in several theater roles and bit parts in shows. 

Palillo was born on April 2, 1949, in Cheshire, Connecticut. His passion began when his mother enrolled him in local theater as a young boy. He later indulged his interest and attended the University of Connecticut, where he participated in Shakespearean productions. 

The actor is survived by his partner, Joseph Gramm, his two brothers and a sister. The cherished pop star of the 1970’s will always be remembered.
