The Parents Television Council issued a statement on the passing of Actor and Parents Television Council Advisory Board Member Tim Conway.
“Our hearts are heavy with the news of our dear friend Tim Conway’s passing. We are profoundly grateful for his many years of loving support for the PTC’s mission. Despite the voluminous demands on his time, he was always, always, there for us. He attended gatherings of our grassroots leaders; he wrote letters in support of our work; he autographed hundreds of copies of his memoir, What’s So Funny? as special gifts to our members; he entertained our benefactors with a special live performance at our headquarters; and for over two decades he served on the PTC’s Advisory Board, always willing to help me with his personal counsel. And every conversation with Tim left me with sore stomach muscles after laughing uncontrollably!” said PTC President Tim Winter.
“Tim Conway was a blessing to us, and he was a blessing to the entire world by making life brighter for countless millions. And whether as Dorf, as Mr. Tudball, as the inept Dentist or any of the other characters he brought to life, he will continue to bless us with laughter forever.
“God bless this wonderful man who brought unbridled joy to humanity.”
