"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 died at 8:45 a.m. in Los Angeles, his rep, Howard Bragman, told ET. Bragman adds that, before his death, the actor was battling complications from normal pressure hydrocephalus, which is when fluid accumulates and causes the ventricles in the brain to become enlarged. He was 85 years old.
He is best remembered for portraying the hilariously inept Ensign Parker on the sitcom McHale's Navy, as well his unforgettable co-starring role on Burnett's sketch comedy show in the '70s.
The late actor's longtime publicist, Roger Neal, also shared a statement with ET regarding his client's death.
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…."
His daughter, Kelly, also shared a statement on Tuesday honoring her late father.
"It is with the greatest sorrow that my brothers, Tim, Patrick, Jamie, Corey, Seann, and I announce that our Dad, Tim Conway has passed away," the statement reads. "The love he gave us, and the laughter he gave the world will never be replaced, but will be remembered forever. He is at peace now but I will miss him every second of every day until we meet again in heaven. We knew he would have to leave us someday, but that day came too soon. 'SO LEAVE ME IF YOU NEED TOO, I WILL STILL REMEMBER, ANGEL FLYING TOO CLOSE TO THE GROUND.' I want to thank everyone for their prayers, love and support over the past year or so."
Conway is survived by his wife, Charlene, his stepdaughter, as well as six children he shared with his first wife, Mary Anne Dalton.
