On Monday, Doris Day. On Tuesday, Tim Conway. The beloved comic actor who became a star through The Carol Burnett Show has died at age 85, reports People. Conway won four Emmys for his work on the show, and another two for guest appearances on Coach and 30 Rock, per the AP. He also starred in movies such as The Apple Dumpling Gang. On the Burnett show, Conway was famous for his ad-libs, particularly with sidekick Harvey Korman. His rep attributes the cause of death to complications from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus. Conway is survived by his wife of 35 years, a stepdaughter, six biological children, and two grandchildren. (Last year, a dispute arose about his medical care.)
