Conway's son is homeless on the streets of Los Angeles. HE's about 64. I hope his son gets a piece of that inheritance.

I found the street interview from January of 2018. Was that you interviewing him? I could only take so much of it. The interviewer was trying very hard to portray Patrick's siblings as distant and uncaring. But who paid for Patrick's seven stints in rehab? He also mentioned that he's a beneficiary of a trust. The interviewer wanted Patrick to say he had to have a beer every 2 hours, Patrick said a beer every 48 hours...

Here's Patrick's FB page: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100008255860345&__nodl

He does not appear to currently be homeless. I don't believe I would desire to play golf with you.

His obit says he had seven children with his first wife. That was some big family.

Loved his sense of humor and good timing.

He and Harvey Korman, Carol Burnett, and Vickie Lawrence were hysterical.

My grandma used to love the Carol Burnett show. I watched it whenever I spent the night over at her house. I loved Tim Conway in a skit , where he was playing an old man. It was funny; he was taking forever to do things.

My favorite was Mr. Tudball, Mrs. Whiggins' boss.

I loved the way he would make Harvey Korman laugh.

I miss that more natural, spontaneous, free-wheeling humor, rather than the rapid-fire dirty jokes. I love good satire, but that's a gift that few people have.

Tim Conway as an old man, with that vacant, mildly-confused look on his face, and his slow shuffle, was funny and endearing at the same time. The difference is--that we loved those characters, as we laughed at them, and we wanted to see them again and again, as old friends.

He was irreplaceable.

He was a great comedian. My favorite is when he was the dentist and accidentally injected himself with Novocaine. :D

My favorite Conway moment. Carol Burnett and Korman doing a sketch while in the background Conway playing a dismissed butler tries to exit the room through large double doors with handles smeared in oil.
