Last time I saw him was that celebrity boxing match that pitted him against Saved By The Bell Dustin Diamond--a battle of the dorks. A-hole Diamond took the fight WAY too seriously.

That show; and its' wonderful ensemble cast, were such a wonderful part of my youth.
Most of them were degreed and experienced professionals; nothing like the teenagers they portrayed.

RIP, Ron.

I went to college with Ron. 63 is too damned young.

Diamond was half Palillo's age and had Palillo outweighed by about 50 pounds. Ridiculous pairing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j1ZkdGJj2s8), even with the "two guys who starred on a school sitcom" gimmick.
