Veteran actor Tim Conway – who passed away on May 14 at age 85 – became a household name after hit shows like “McHale’s Navy” and “The Carol Burnett Show.” But our state will remember him as the comedic guy who had deep Ohio roots.
Conway was born Thomas Conway in 1933 in the Cleveland suburb of Willoughby. He attended Bowling Green State University and served in the U.S. Army. He got his career start on local TV in Cleveland in the 1950s, pursuing and honing his acting skills at Chagrin Valley Little Theatre.
Thanks, Tim, for all the great memories.
