Tim Conway of 'McHale's Navy,' 'Carol Burnett Show' dead at 85

Actor and comedian Tim Conway, best known for his work on The Carol Burnett Show, died this morning in Los Angeles, according to his publicist.

People reports Conway faced complicates from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus and showed no signs of dementia or Alzheimer's.

Patton Oswalt shared an old clip from The Carol Burnett Show and said watching Conway "destroy his castmates is pure joy". But meeting Conway when he guest-starred on The Larry Sanders Show was "all I dreamed it would be", Apatow wrote, adding that Conway was "as kind as he was amusing".

"Nobody could be with Tim and keep a straight face once he got on a roll", Burnett said in a 2003 interview with the Television Academy Foundation. "She said why don't you just be a regular on the show?" Korman was a close friend of Conway's who often broke into laughs during Conway's performances.
