    I recognized the name but don't recall seeing him in anything since Kotter. He was my age, too young to die.

    Wow Welcome Back Kotter was only on television 4 years....

    The joke was the name Juan Epstein and his parents ancestry. He represented an era because that was the only time network television could have sold that premise as something major.

    RIP... Robert Hegyes

    I loved the scene where Epstein makes a fist, and Kotter opens it up to show that there's nothing in there. The look on his face was priceless.
