Tim Conway — best known for roles on “McHale’s Navy” and “The Carol Burnett Show” — is suffering from dementia and his daughter is asking the court to control of his medical care because his current wife is trying to move him out 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.
According to his daughter, Conway is “almost entirely unresponsive” and is suffering from dementia.
Longtime blog readers may recall that Conway is Catholic:
“Jesus and I have stayed in constant touch,” he writes. “I never stop saying thank you.”
Though Tim, who converted to Catholicism in college because of a girl he liked, doesn’t wear his faith on his sleeve, his relationship with God remains important to him. He admits that his journey of faith hasn’t always been a straight line, but adds, “All straight lines get a little crooked from time to time, but I tried to maintain a decent life.”
Remember this remarkable talent and his family in your prayers. What a gift he was. Some of the happiest memories of my childhood were Saturday nights in front of the TV, savoring moments like this.
