Ryan Michael Arran McKellar At the age of 41 Ryan lost his war with cystic fibrosis. His parents Anna-May McKellar and Leland Dykes were with him as he died.

Ryan was a drummer with the band Ocean3. A lover of skateboarding he went on to form his own company Mosaic. He also became an excellent photographer.
