aw, this news sux ass big time :!:

as a kid, I loved Pat as the wild laffin krazy arnold on Happy Days, but it wasn't until I saw him in the Karate Kid films, that I started to appreciate his acting ability and off the cuff humor.

That sucks. Perhaps because he rose to fame a little later than many in his generation, I thought he'd have at least a few more years left in the can. He was an actor of intelligence, humor and dignity and he will be missed.

Natural causes at 73? Any word on the specifics of how he passed? Heart attack?

We will miss you, Pat. I really liked Honeymoon in Vegas, that had the Flying Elvi!! I know! Most of the board members don't like Elvis impersonators, but I liked the Flying Elvi!! You were good in that. Now you are with the real Elvis, instead of the impersonators. R.I.P.

I heard that he was waiting on a liver transplant.

So liver failure would be my guess.
