Tim Conway, well-known comedian on 'The Carol Burnett Show,' dies at 85

Tim Conway (shown above left, beside actress Carol Burnett) passed away on Tuesday morning in Los Angeles, California, after a long illness.

People reports Conway faced complicates from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus and showed no signs of dementia or Alzheimer's. His turns on Coach and 30 Rock earned him Emmys.

His movie work included "The World's Greatest Athlete" in 1973, "The Apple Dumpling Gang" in 1975, "The Shaggy D.A." in 1976, "The Prize Fighter" in 1979 and "Private Eyes" in 1980.

Conway, who changed his first name from Thomas to Tim so as to avoid confusion with actor Tom Conway, had his own short-lived sitcom in 1970.

"If there's any reason at all I'm in the business, I think it's Don", Conway once said. Later in his career, Conway's stepdaughter became the manager for his live tour with longtime friend and former co-star, Harvey Korman. "He is at peace now but I will miss him every second of every day until we meet again in heaven".

He was born Thomas Conway in 1933 in the Cleveland suburb of Willoughby. In recent years, he booked guest spots on Mike & Molly, Glee, Hot in Cleveland and Melissa & Joey, among other series, and lent his voice to animated shows such as SpongeBob SquarePants, in which he voiced Barnacle Boy, and Dragons: Riders of Berk, in which he voiced Mulch. He attended Bowling Green State University and served in the U.S. Army.

After Marie took him under her wing, Conway snagged a part on the weekly variety series The Steve Allen Show.

Conway was married twice, first to Mary Anne Dalton, from 1961 to 1978, and then to Charlene Fusco, whom he married in 1984.
