The late actor suffered Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) before his passing, a condition a source told The ENQUIRER made him so nauseous and dizzy he could barely walk.
Tim is survived by his wife of 35 years, his six biological children, his stepdaughter, and two granddaughters.
He was most known for his roles on The Carol Burnett Show, McHale’s Navy, The Private Eyes, 30 Rock and more.
Fans became worried about Tim when he missed The Carol Burnett Show reunion. As The National ENQUIRER previously reported, he was so riddled with dementia before his death that he didn’t even realize he was in the middle of a war between his daughter Kelly and second wife, Charlene.
At the end, Kelly wanted the court to appoint her conservator of his medical treatments, and claimed he couldn’t “provide for his personal needs for physical health, food, and clothing” and was “almost entirely unresponsive.” The disease took his life just months later.
In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to be made to The Lou Ruvo Brain Center at the Cleveland Clinic in Las Vegas.
