Anton Motley Education-in memory of Tim

On March 28th, 2013 Anton Motley (2yo) lost his father, Timothy J. Motley to a sudden cardiac arrest. Tim, 47, was the J. Robert Stiffler Distinguished Professor of Botany at Old Dominion University and director of science at the Norfolk Batanical Garden. Tim's wife, Tatyana Lobova, and family wish to gratefully acknowledge the many acts of kindness by scientific colleagues, friends, and members of the ODU community. Some of those friends have helped establish a custodial savings account in Anton's name to help provide for his daycare and educational needs amidst the uncertainty of the years to come. Your donations via this site, of any amount, will help the many people who loved and admired Tim, to create a lasting legacy that will benefit his son well into the future. 

More information about Tim can be found here.
