OBITUARY:
William (Bill) Gordon Husted, 71, passed away at home August 9th with his wife Mary and step-daughter Erin by his side. Born to Harleth and Peggy Husted on October 8th, 1946, he was a newspaper man at heart. After a professional life in newspapers, including the Arkansas Democrat, and a stint in advertising, Bill joined the Atlanta Journal Constitution in 1990 where he served as Technology Editor, columnist, and business reporter. In 1993 he started writing a popular syndicated column, Technobuddy, which he continued after retirement. Bill was an amateur ham radio operator, an interest he developed while in high school that stayed with him the rest of his life. Sundays you could find him communicating with a close circle of friends who shared his passion, including his uncle, Bill Key. Survivors include his wife, Mary Donovan, stepchildren Ryan and Erin Bauslaugh, brother Scott Husted, sister Susan Murch (Carl), niece Laura Shudrowitz (Brian), and nephew Matthew Murch. A family graveside service will be held in Oceanside California. Memorial donations may be made to St. Jude Children's Hospital. An online guestbook is available at Fischer Funeral Care, Atlanta www.fischerfuneralcare.com

Bill was a great guy with an intelligence, writing ability and sense of humor that were unique. I admired the way he wrote and the way he looked at the world. We will miss him. My condolences to Mary and the rest of his family. Andy

Iíll miss Billís wit and charm, his kindness and generosity. Enjoyed Bill and Maryís hospitality in their home. Still on display in my house is Billís gift to me years ago, a large maple burl bowl fashioned by former AJC colleague, the late Jack Warner. My heartfelt Aloha to Mary and family.

I've thought of Bill often. He kept me from leaving journalism back in 1995. I will never forget him for that. What a great person.
Scott ThurstonSep 21 2018 10:42 am
I worked with Bill in the business news department at the AJC. He was a wonderful colleague and friend -- quirky, funny, brilliant and warm-hearted. He was a great conversationalist and spoke often and lovingly of Mary, Erin and Ryan as well as other relatives. I'm very sorry to hear of his passing. My sincere sympathies.

An old friend from Arkadelphia, I learned about Bill's column Techno buddy several years ago. I always loved his sense of humor.
