Tim Conway Passed Away at 85

Seems like another day, another celebrity from our past passes away.

RIP - Tim Conway

Quote:
Tim Conway has died at the age of 85 after battling dementia.

He passed away at 8:45 a.m. in the Los Angeles area on Tuesday, his rep Howard Bragman confirms to PEOPLE.

Prior to his death, he suffered complications from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) and had no signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Conway is survived by his wife of 35 years, his stepdaughter, his six biological children and two granddaughters. In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family would like donations to be made to The Lou Ruvo Brain Center at the Cleveland Clinic in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The beloved actor is best known for his work on The Carol Burnett Show, winning viewers over with characters like the Oldest Man and Mr. Tudball, whose accent he has said was inspired by his Romanian mother. He was known to ad-lib his sketches — even surprising his scene partners — and won a Golden Globe Award for the series in 1976, along with Emmys in 1973, 1977 and 1978.

He and Harvey Korman were an unbeatable pair. What a matchup!
Rest in peace, Tim.

I used to love the way Harvey Korman could not keep a straight face when doing a skit with Tim.

Used to laugh at his slooooow walk across the stage....then, when I was recently in hospital, I found myself doing it........trouble is, all the nurses were too young to appreciate the unintended mimicry.

That old-man bit Conway did on the Carol Burnett Show was hilarious, even before he broke up poor Harvey Korman all the time! To me, that bit was the funniest bit they did on that show.


RIP Tim Conway
