Tim Conway, known for his role in the comedy broadcast, “The Carol Burnett Show”, passed away Tuesday morning at the age of 85. The American comic actor, writer and director’s publicist was the first one to report about his death in Los Angeles.
Conway struggled with several health battles before his death, as per his representative, Howard Bragman. However, Bragman confirmed that the illness was neither dementia nor Alzheimer’s disease, as reported earlier.
The American comic actor’s daughter, Kelly Conway, had resolved a legal battle with her stepmother and Tim’s second wife, Charlene Conway, about a month ago. The dispute was over Tim’s custody and care, which the daughter believed was not being taken care of under Charlene’s supervision. Both, mother and daughter fought over undertaking Tim’s sole conservatorship in probate court throughout 2018.
However, it was only after an year long legal battle that Conway’s daughter Kelly received the rights to visit Tim and keep a check on his healthcare professional. She was “very happy with the outcome after more than a year of fighting to keep her dad safe and sound. She is now allowed to see him and is permitted to meet with Tim’s healthcare professionals,” read one of her statements shared by her publicist, Roger Neal.
Kelly is one of Tim’s seven children from Mary Anne Dalton, his first wife. After the death of her father, Kelly said, “The love he gave us, and the laughter he gave the world will never be replaced, but will be remembered forever, he is at peace now but I will miss him every second of every day until we meet again in heaven.” “We knew he would have to leave us someday, but that day came too soon. When he used to hear the song ‘Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground’ he would say, ‘I want that played at my funeral,’” she added.
Tim Conway may have made the world laugh all his life, but himself died a miserable death. However, despite being surrounded with disputes between his wife and daughter, Tim didn’t die unloved, as his daughter made sure he received the best of healthcare services, even though it took her a year-long legal battle to do that.
