A temporary headstone with the actor’s name was placed at the location of the grave, with plans on installing a bust of the iconic entertainer. It was not immediately clear why the timeline of the project was extended.

Tyler Cassity, the cemetery’s co-owner and president, told the AP that plans are in the offing to unveil the bust this fall, to coincide with the third anniversary of Boogie Nights star’s passing.

Reynolds’ grave was decorated with flowers, a wreath and a small toy car resembling the Trans Am he drove in the Smokey and the Bandit movies. 

It’s located in the section of the establishment that is also the final resting place of actor Tyrone Power and late musical stars Johnny Ramone and Chris Cornell.

Monetary and legal aspects of Reynolds’ estate were fully settled late last year, with his niece Nancy Hess overseeing the transactions.

At the time of his death, Reynolds had been slated to appear in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, playing Spahn ranch owner George Spahn. (Bruce Dern played the role in the wake of Reynolds’ passing.)

‘My uncle was looking forward to working with Quentin Tarantino, and the amazing cast that was assembled,’ Hess said following Reynolds’ death of the movie, which featured Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt, the latter winning an Oscar for his efforts.
