Ryan Polley

July 30, 1972 — June 18, 2020

Austin, Texas

Ryan Northcott (Polley) was born in Oregon and passed in his sleep on June 18th, 2020.

As a child, Ryan moved around a lot. He was raised by his Mother, Grandfather, Uncle, and Aunt. Ryan worked in food service for many years. He worked at Thundercloud Subs as a night manager and most recently, as a delivery driver for Amy's Ice Cream. Ryan was also a writer, creator, artist, and musician. Ryan worked with Helmgast as a writer, content developer, and audio manager. Ryan also worked with Death Before Radio as a controller. The most recent soundtrack Ryan worked on was Divinity Lost Dark Ambient Soundtrack. Ryans' solo musical projects were released on Spotify and Bandcamp under the name Mechanoreceptor . He also did his own cover art.

Ryan did many charity projects, donating his time and music for many causes. He and as many of his friends believed:

"What the world needs is more people planting mango trees and much fewer people wondering who's going to eat the fruit."

As a person, Ryan was passionate and very direct. If he did not understand or if he disliked something, he was always clear about that. He could be stubborn and fought against ideas that he believed to be wrong, or untrue.

Ryan is survived by his wife, two daughters, Uncle John Northcott and brother Bryan Polley.

Due to COVID-19, a Memorial Service will be announced at a later date.
