Tim Conway, the impish second banana to Carol Burnett who won four Emmy Awards on her TV variety show, starred aboard "McHale's Navy" and later voiced the role of Barnacle Boy for "Spongebob Squarepants," has died. He was 85.
Conway died Tuesday morning in a Los Angeles care facility, according to Howard Bragman, who heads LaBrea Media. Conway's wife, Charlene Fusco, and a daughter, Jackie, were at his side. The cause was a disorder in which there is an excess of fluid on the brain, Bragman said.
The beloved actor and comedian loved horse racing and spent a lot of time at the Del Mar racetrack over the years.
Conway’s love of horse racing went beyond just betting on the ponies. He and Chris McCarron raised thousands of dollars for injured jockeys.
He would often bring friends to Del Mar like Bob Newhart and Mike Conner.
