Anthony Ryver Motz age 10 passed away December 26, 2023 at Greeneville Community Hospital. On Dec 9, 2016 Anthony "little bear" made the journey from Tampa to Greeneville to join the family fondly known to those close as the Motz monsters. He proved to be a cantankerous little soul who ,even though it was 15 degrees refused to wear pants or shoes and would kick off any blanket. He also let it be known that he was not used to being held or touched a lot. It took a lot of time but he finally realized being cuddled might not be that bad. His world really changed when he received his first pair of glasses and he could see for the first time. Little Bear was matched with a runner through the organization I run 4 Michael. It matches runners with buddies that cant run. For many years he received encouraging messages from Adrian Flink describing her morning run and animals she saw along the way. We will miss Ms Adrian. Anthony loved Paw Patrol and and always had his tablet going. Anthony had many serious medical challenges, some quite painful. He was tired and worn from the daily struggle. On Dec 26 he won his battle and joined brothers Tyler and Hunter and sister Angel and they are dancing with Jesus He is survived by his mother Vicie Motz, 2 brothers Ryan and Trevor Motz, 2 sisters Kyley Motz and Mari Motz, aunt and uncle Allen and Sandy Broyles, cousins Eric and Tonya Broyles, Tim and Kelly Cutshaw, special caregivers from Elk Valley Health Services, special friends Skippy Davis Wilhoit and Stephen Wilhoit, biological mother Sharmelyia Young, grandfather Rodney Young, sister Jilani Young, brother Vassiaha, grandma Betty Dixon, grandpa Stainly Dixon, uncle Se'quan, auntie Mina.
