Tim Conway, star on ‘The Carol Burnett Show’, has died at 85

Publicist Howard Bragman said Conway died in the Los Angeles area on Tuesday morning.

His representative confirmed his death to People, saying Conway died from complications with Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus.

Conway was best known for his comedic role in the "The Carol Burnett Show" (1975-1978).

Our thoughts are with Tim's loved ones during this time.

Comedians Harvey Korman (L), and Tim Conway show off three Emmy Awards for the "Carol Burnett Show" at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, in Pasadena, Calif., on September 18, 1978. They toured the country for years with a sketch show called "Together Again", which drew on characters from Burnett's show.

He continued making movies, starring in numerous family feature films, including "The World's Greatest Athlete", "The Apple Dumpling Gang", "Gus", "Dear God", "Speed 2: Cruise Control" and "Air Bud: Golden Receiver". (Carefully costumed, Conway performed the bits on his knees.) Among them were "Dorf on Golf" and "Dorf Goes Fishing".


Conway also starred in "McHale's Navy" and was the voice of Barnacle Boy on "Spongebob".

He was a staple of TV variety programs and comedy shows for roughly half a century.

In addition to those four Emmy wins, he won in 1996 for outstanding guest actor in a comedy, Coach, and in 2008 for guest actor in a comedy for 30 Rock. Born Thomas D. Conway on December 15, 1933, in Willoughby, Ohio, he grew up in the curiously named community of Chagrin Falls, which later inspired his unique comedy routines. Actress Rose Marie, a co-star on "The Dick Van Dyke Show", liked his work and helped him get a regular spot on "The Steve Allen Show" in the early 1960s. In her petition, Kelly detailed her concerns with her stepmother, Charlene's, medical decisions regarding Tim Conway.

Burnett and Conway continued to work together throughout the rest of their careers.

Conway is survived by his wife of 35 years, six children, a step-daughter and two granddaughters.
