Beloved funnyman, Tim Conway, 84, best known for his many memorable appearances on ‘The Carol Burnett Show’ is reportedly in very poor health, suffering from dementia and unable to care for himself. His daughter, Kelly 57, “is asking the court to control his medical care because his current wife is trying to move him out of the facility he is in.
“According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Conway’s daughter, Kelly, is asking a court to appoint her the conservator of her father’s person so she can handle his medical treatments.”
People magazine offers additional details, “Kelly, 56, filed the documents in Los Angeles on Friday, claiming Conway’s wife Charlene is ‘planning to move him out of the excellent skilled nursing facility he is currently at’ and place him in one that won’t give him access to ‘registered nurses at all times and his 24-hour caregiver and speech therapist (to help with swallowing).’
“Kelly also states that Conway cannot ‘properly provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, and clothing’ and is ‘almost entirely unresponsive.’
Kelly is hoping to be granted guardianship of her father so that she can make sure he continues to receive the best medical care possible.
Conway married his current wife Charlene in 1984, but he and his first wife, Mary Ann had seven children together during their 17-year marriage that lasted from 1961-78: Jaime, Tim Jr., Pat, Corey, Shawn, Jackie, and Kelly.
Conway is best known for his many appearances on the beloved variety show, ‘The Carol Burnett Show’ in which his appearance was sure to cause his co-stars to break character and laugh uncontrollably. He also appeared as Ensign Parker in the 1960s Comedy ’McHale’s Navy.’
