Actor Tim Conway speaks onstage during the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards rehearsals held at The Shrine Auditorium on January 29, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

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

The actor was a recurring player on the legendary variety show from its debut season in 1967, eventually joining the main cast in 1975 when original cast member Lyle Waggoner left the show.

He enjoyed success in a series of "Dorf" comedy films and appeared in such movies as The Apple Dumpling Gang, Gus and The Shaggy D.A.

Carol Burnett told FOX News, "I'm heartbroken". "He is at peace now but I will miss him every second of every day until we meet again in heaven".

While America was laughing at Conway, so were his co-stars: Burnett and Harvey Korman were often caught by the camera trying not to crack up during his performances.

Conway would also enjoy memorable guest roles in series like Married. with Children and Yes, Dear, along with voicing Barnacle Boy in SpongeBob SquarePants.
