Wife of late Hollywood celebrity, Tom Conway fondly remembers her hubby as she recounts moments they shared.


A representative for the “Carol Burnett’s Show” star confirmed his passing to PEOPLE making it known that the actor passed on at the age of 85 in Los Angeles.


His widow, Charlene Fusco has decided to hold on to the sweet memories of her spouse as she describes Conway as “funny” and Kind” while speaking with PEOPLE. She said:


“People say that nothing is perfect and truly nothing ever is, but we had a marriage that… I feel that the two of us were meant to be together. We were just one mind and heart. And it was 35 years of heaven. I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s true.”

Charlene went on as she explained that the award-winning Star was a fun loving man whose good nature spread to friends and family. She added:

“Tim “instill[ed] in the family, all the kids, the grandkids, that humor does help us deal with horrific experiences. It’s a way out. For him, it was a way out. It didn’t mean he felt or grieved any less. That was his outlet for it.”


Charlene continued talking about her beloved spouse as she relayed that Conway was a humble celebrity who downplayed his status. She explains:

“He was always shocked and surprised when other celebrities knew who he was.”

She chipped in, saying:

“He truly was. He and Harvey [Korman] toured for ten years doing this two-man show in theaters all across the country, and he was always surprised that there were standing ovations and crowds around the stage door, entrance and exit.”


Charlene added:

"That’s how humble he was, He never took his celebrity for granted, nor did he wallow in it.”

“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,”

Other stars who paid tribute to Conway include Al Roker, Conan O’Brien and Kathy Griffin who called him “a wildly talented, comedy giant.”
