Comedian Tim Conway of 'The Carol Burnett Show' dies at 85

Publicist Howard Bragman said Conway died in the Los Angeles area on Tuesday morning. Conway had been suffering from dementia and unable to speak following brain surgery in September.

Throughout the 1970s, comic actor Tim Conway appeared in a variety of sketches as a recurring player and later, a series regular on The Carol Burnett Show.

Tributes also came from across the comedy world, including from Conan O'Brien, who said "no one made me laugh harder than Tim Conway" and Kathy Griffin, who called him "a wildly talented, comedy giant".

In March, People reported that Charlene was granted conservatorship over Tim Conway.

He continued developing memorable characters after his "Carol Burnett" years.

Conway first rose to fame on the TV series "McHale's Navy", which ran from 1962 to 1966. Conway added two additional Emmys to his substantial trophy collection in 1996 and 2008 for his supporting roles as Kenny inCoach and Bucky Bright in 30 Rock. She would go on to guest star on Conway's short-lived "The Tim Conway Show" in the early 1980s. 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.

The star landed his own series The Tim Conway Show in 1970 and had parts in a number of films including The Apple Dumpling Gang. He got his career start on local TV in Cleveland in the 1950s, where his duties included comedy spots on a late-night movie show.

"His name is Tom Conway", Marie said. So, he became Tim Conway.

Burnett will dedicate a previously scheduled performance of her one-woman show, An Evening of Laughter and Reflection Where the Audience Asks Questions, to Conway's memory tonight in North Carolina.

Conway is survived by his wife of 35 years, his stepdaughter, his six biological children and his two granddaughters, according to Fox8.com.
