Tim Conway, a multiple Emmy victor and star of The Carol Burnett Show, died Tuesday in Los Angeles, per The Hollywood Reporter.

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, before his death, "he suffered complications from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) and had no signs of dementia or Alzheimer's".

Conway also had a modest but steady movie career, appearing in such films as "The Apple Dumpling Gang".

Conway's improvisational antics frequently cracked up his co-stars, foremost among them Harvey Korman.

After his discharge from the military, Conway started his show business career by writing promotional spots for local television and radio in Cleveland, OH.

Burnett gave a statement following the sad news.

Tributes also came from across the comedy world, including from Conan O'Brien, who said "no one made me laugh harder than Tim Conway" and Kathy Griffin, who called him "a wildly talented, comedy giant".

"Harvey wet his trousers", Conway bragged. I cherish the times we had together both on the screen and off. Conway added two additional Emmys to his substantial trophy collection in 1996 and 2008 for his supporting roles as Kenny inCoach and Bucky Bright in 30 Rock. He soon became a regular.

The comedian won four Emmy awards for his work on the iconic show.

Conway was perhaps best known for his role on "The Carol Burnett" show in the 1970s.

Conway was married to Mary Anne Dalton from 1961 until 1978 and they had six children together.
