Known to his friends as "Ted," Reid died in Studio City, California on June 21, 2013 at 93.

On April 8th, 2006 my wife and I were fortunate to have had lunch with "Tim" Reid, as his badge read, when we attended a radio program recreation in Van Nuys, California. During the conversation at the table of eight, one woman asked if he was related to the actor Elliot Reid. "That's me," he answered. My wife was seated between us so I took a closer look and, in spite of the changes brought on by time, I pictured him with his hairpiece and realized I was in the presence of the same guy who appeared opposite Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes! It was a thrilling moment for me. My good friend of many years, June Foray, who was part of the show, had told me I shouldn't miss the event and I'm glad we went. When you're surrounded by legends like Robert Easton, Janet Waldo, Chuck McCann, Marvin Kaplan, Herb Ellis and many others it's hard to define what moment left the biggest impression but chatting with Tim was definately the highlight of the day. I know...I dropped a lot of names but everytime I turned around it was someone else who's contributions to entertainment were outstanding. That was a day I'll never forget.
