Was sad to hear about this, was a big fan of the show and loved him in Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI (1986)

Re: RIP Ron Palillo.

Wow, I would never have put him at 63.  I'd have thought mid-50s, tops.

I've only ever seen a few things he'd been in -- Welcome Back, Carter; Surf II; Friday the 13th Part 6; Hellgate.  Yet while he might not have had as extensive a list of credits as some, he at the very least left an impression. 

RIP.
