In a statement to USA Today, Conway’s daughter Kelly Conway said, “The love he gave us, and the laughter he gave the world will never be replaced but will be remembered forever.”

“He is at peace now but I will miss him every second of every day until we meet again in heaven. We knew he would have to leave us someday but that day came too soon,” she told USA Today.
