The actor and comedian best known for his role on The Carol Burnett Show has died.

The actor died at 8:45 a.m. after a long bout with illness, Conway's daughter Kelly, confirmed in a press release Tuesday morning.

According to People, Conway suffered complications from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) before his death, but showed no signs of dementia or Alzheimer's.

Conway won three Emmy awards for acting on the Burnett show and a fourth as a writer in the 1960s and '70s.

Conway started on the show as a guest star in its first season in 1967 but did not officially become a regular until 1975.

He was nominated for 13 Emmys and won six during the course of his career including four for his work on "The Carol Burnett Show", and two more for guest appearances on "Coach" and "30 Rock".

"It is with the greatest sorrow that my brothers, Tim, Patrick, Jamie, Corey, Seann, and I announce that our Dad, Tim Conway has passed away", the statement reads.

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. I cherish the times we had together both on the screen and off.

Conway was born on December 15, 1933, just outside of Cleveland, Ohio, in nearby Willoughby, Illinois.

After Marie took him under her wing, Conway snagged a part on the weekly variety series The Steve Allen Show.

Conway first rose to fame on the TV series "McHale's Navy", which ran from 1962 to 1966.

Conway also starred in "McHale's Navy" and was the voice of Barnacle Boy on "Spongebob".

Conway is survived by his wife of 35 years, six children, a step-daughter and two granddaughters.
