Comedy legend Carol Burnett paid tribute to longtime friend and co-star of the Carol Burnett ShowTim Conway, who died this week due to complications from hydrocephalus.

Burnett shared a statement to ET honoring Conway following his death on Tuesday.

“I’m heartbroken,” she wrote. “He was one in a million, not only as a brilliant comedian but as a loving human being. I cherish the times we had together both on the screen and off. He’ll be in my heart forever.”

Conway’s publicist, Roger Neal, also shared a statement regarding his client’s death.

“It was my high honor to represent Tim Conway as his manager and publicist from 2012-2017,” he wrote. “The guest star roles I had him do, and the press tour for his NY Times best-selling book, and spending time in his home, were truly some of the best times in my 38 [year] career. He was off screen what the world saw on screen.”

“We had so many laughs… what a pure joy to have had the privilege of working with one of the true masters of comedy,” he added. “There will never be another one like him. R.I.P. my friend.”


Conway is survived by his wife, his stepdaughter, as well as his six children he shared with his first wife, Mary Anne Dalton.
