For decades, Tim Conway has been a much-loved comic actor. After rising to fame in the 1960s, the star has since gone on to have an illustrious career on both the big and small screens. And, most recently, he has become known to younger audiences for voicing Barnacle Boy in SpongeBob SquarePants. However, the veteran entertainer is now sadly suffering from dementia, and his daughter has subsequently revealed just how far the disease has progressed.
Conway has lived a fascinating life by almost anyone’s standards. In a move that may have prepared him for his future career, he studied speech and radio at Bowling Green University. Then, upon graduation, the Ohio native signed up for the U.S. Army. His tour of duty would ultimately take just over two years – with extra time added as punishment for his jokes and pranks.
