From LA Times:

Robert Hegyes, an actor whose character, Juan Epstein, was one of the Sweathogs on the 1970s TV sitcom "Welcome Back, Kotter," died Thursday of an apparent heart attack in New Jersey. He was 60.

Hegyes, of Hungarian and Italian descent, played Juan Luis Pedro Phillipo de Huevos Epstein on "Welcome Back, Kotter," which also starred John Travolta, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs and Ron Palillo as high school students mentored by their teacher, played by Gabe Kaplan. It aired on ABC from 1975 to 1979.
Hegyes suffered a heart attack at his home in Metuchen, N.J., and was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital, the Star-Ledger newspaper reported.

Hegyes also had a recurring role on "Cagney & Lacey" in the late 1980s.
