‘Yellowstone’ Season 5 Episode 5 was dedicated to Timothy Reynolds

Yellowstone Season 5 Episode 5 featured a title card dedicated in memory of Timothy Reynolds, who died on August 24, 2022, at the age of 66. Reynolds’ cause of death has not been specified.


On the set of Yellowstone, Reynolds was a valuable crew member. He worked as an electrician and what is known as a “best boy (electric)” in the industry.

In television and film, a best boy typically works as an assistant to their department head, such as the gaffer or key grip. Reynolds behind the scenes work helped make Yellowstone the visually stunning series that it always has been.

Express reports that Reynolds was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, and started his career as a stock broker. He later moved into the entertainment industry.

Reynolds’ time on Yellowstone was not his first rodeo. His first time working on a film came in 1997 when he was an electrician in the TV movie Not in this Town.

He worked in similar roles on the Ari Astor horror film Hereditary, as well as one of Taylor Sheridan’s earlier works, Wind River. Reynolds worked on 31 episodes of Yellowstone, according to IMDb, and in an Instagram post, he referred to working on the set of Yellowstone as his “dream job.”

‘Yellowstone’ crew member Caleb Rasak posted a tribute to Reynolds

In an Instagram post, Caleb Rasak, a fellow crew member on the set of Yellowstone, shared a heartfelt tribute to Reynolds. “Tim (Senior) was my best friend and a father figure to me,” he wrote.

“He brought me into Utah with open arms and created so many relationships that created the man I am today. You will be missed so much, Timmy. I love you, brother. Rest In Peace.”
