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

Tributes from celebrities continued to pour in Tuesday following the sad news that legendary comedian and actor Tim Conway had died following a long illness.

The cause of Conway's death was not publicized, but he reportedly suffered complications from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus without signs of dementia or Alzheimer's.

It was his work in Carol Burnett's variety show that really stood out, however, as he earned a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in the series as well as several Primetime Emmys. The ensemble cast included Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner.

In his later years, Conway did numerous guest appearances - winning additional Emmys for roles in the sitcoms Coach and 30 Rock - and voiceover work in animation, including SpongeBob Squarepants.

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.

Born Thomas Daniel Conway on December 15, 1933, in Willoughby, OH, Conway attended Bowling Green State University, where he studied television and radio.

He was discovered by Rose Marie of "The Dick Van Dyke Show", who got him an audition for "The Steve Allen Show".

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

"If there's any reason at all I'm in the business, I think it's Don", Conway once said.

"The love he gave us, and the laughter he gave the world will never be replaced but will be remembered forever", Kelly Conway said in a statement to USA Today. (Carefully costumed, Conway performed the bits on his knees.) Among them were "Dorf on Golf" and "Dorf Goes Fishing".

The newly self-christened Tim Conway soon got an even bigger break in 1962 with the role of the bumbling ensign on "McHale's". So, he became Tim Conway.

The actor leaves behind his wife to whom he was married for 35 years, seven children (including a step-daughter), and two granddaughters.
