Conway’s former publicist and friend Roger Neal says he was “stunned” to learn of his passing. “The guest star roles I had him do, and the press tour for his NY Times bestselling book, and spending time in his home, were truly some of the best times in my 38-year career. He was off-screen what the world saw on screen,” he said.

“What a pure joy to have had the privilege of working with one of the true masters of comedy. There will never be another one like him. RIP my friend.”
