Carol Burnett Remembers Tim Conway: "He’ll Be In My Heart Forever"

Tim Conway, ‘Carol Burnett Show’ star, dead at 85

Tim Conway, who gained fame as bumbling Ensign Parker on McHale's Navy and for a slew of silly characters on The Carol Burnett Show, has died.

The actor died at 8:45 a.m. after a long bout with illness, Conway's daughter Kelly, confirmed in a press release Tuesday morning.

People reports Conway faced complicates from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus and showed no signs of dementia or Alzheimer's. The series was the first in a string of self-titled shows, including The Tim Conway Comedy Hour and The Tim Conway Show, the latter of which was a variety sketch series that aired from 1980 until 1981.

She quipped that she should have had "some investment in Depends, because nobody could be with Tim and keep a straight face", particularly Burnett and Conway's co-star Harvey Korman, who died in 2008. He joined the cast of the show in 1975 as a regular after frequently appearing as a guest. He won two more Emmys for guest appearances on Coach and 30 Rock.

"If there's any reason at all I'm in the business, I think it's Don", Conway once said. In one such incident, Conway was fond of recalling, he caused castmate Harvey Korman to wet his trousers from laughter. I mean, this is a guy who played a leather daddy truck driver on the infamous Paul Lynde Halloween Special and also voiced Barnacle Boy on SpongeBob SquarePants.

Conway was born on December 15, 1933, just outside of Cleveland, Ohio, in nearby Willoughby, Illinois. Conway made New York City home and went on to land a breakout role on McHale's Navy beginning in 1962.

The legendary comedian was married twice, first to Mary Anne Dalton from 1961 to 1978 and together they had six children.
