Tim Conway, the Emmy-winning actor best known for his role in “The Carol Burnett Show,” died Tuesday morning in Los Angeles after a long illness, his publicist, Howard Bragman, said. He was 85. His wife, Charlene Fusco, and a daughter, Jackie, were at his side.

Conway also starred in “McHale’s Navy” and later voiced the role of Barnacle Boy for “Spongebob Squarepants.” An Ohio-native, Conway credited his Midwestern roots for putting him on the right path to laughs, with his deadpan expression and innocent, simple-minded demeanor.
