    James Farentino was a good active and a very attractive man. I liked his work. I seem to remember that he was married to Michelle Lee for quite a long time. Before that he was married to Elizabeth Ashley but for only a few years. There were a couple more wives afterwards but Michelle Lee was the longest.

    R.I.P. Juan Epstein
    Robert Hegyes, Welcome Back Kotter Star, Dies

    Thursday January 26, 2012 06:35 PM EST

    Robert Hegyes, best known as John Travolta's fellow "Sweathog" Juan Epstein on the sitcom Welcome Back Kotter, has died. He was 60

    Hegyes died from an apparent heart attack after having chest pains, The Star-Ledger reports. His brother tells the New Jersey paper the actor had suffered a heart attack in the last couple of years and was not well.

    Hegyes, who was born in New Jersey, played a wise-cracking Jewish Puerto Rican student with an infectious wide grin. He co-starred in the classic comedy with a young Travolta, who played Vinnie Barbarino.

    Hegyes also acted in Cagney and Lacey NewsRadio, Diagnosis Murder and The Drew Carey Show.

    I know. Even though he was a regular on Cagney and Lacey, which I watched, he's still frozen in time as Epstein for me. I remember that show so vividly from my childhood.

    I remember when his absence excuses were always signed "Epstein's muthaaaah (mother)"! Cute show.

    Look at it this way: if St. Peter gives him any trouble at the pearly gates, I'm sure he'll have a note to cover it.
