Joshua BUEHLER Obituary
BUEHLER, Joshua Ian Joshua Ian Buehler, 41, died November 6, 2016 after a heroic battle with Glioblastoma Multiforme. He was born on August 21, 1975, in Lancaster, Ohio the son of Elaine and Jay Buehler. He graduated from Crescent High School in 1993. Josh attended The Georgia Institute of Technology from 1993 to 1999, where he received a bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering. In middle and high school, Josh was a competitive gymnast at Piedmont Academy of Gymnastics in Greenville, South Carolina, where he was coached by Bob White. Josh trained in the summertime at the prestigious Woodward Gymnastics Camp in Pennsylvania. Josh's favorite and strongest event was horizontal high bar, but he competed in all six events. While at Georgia Tech, Josh worked at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI). After graduation, he went on to work at BlueWave Computing in Smyrna, until he co-founded his company Cover Networks with close friend Greg Tyson. Attending Georgia Tech, Josh was a captain of the varsity cheerleading team. Josh competed in both NCA and UCA Cheerleading National Championships. Josh was an amazing mentor to many of the members of the cheerleading community working at several gymnastics and cheerleading gyms in the Atlanta area. After graduation from Georgia Tech, Josh maintained his involvement in the cheerleading program by coaching from 2000 to 2002 and continued to volunteer coach after that. There has been no one person who has touched more generations of Georgia Tech cheerleaders than Josh. Josh married the love of his life, Jenna Ward in September of 2014. They welcomed daughter Reilly into the world in September 2016. Josh was a fierce supporter of Jenna's distance running endeavors and her career as an athletic trainer at Georgia Tech. Josh was a menagerie of things, each one of them wonderful and uniquely him. He was everyone's favorite friend. Josh was quietly passionate about everything he loved. He was fond of classic rock and a big fan of the local music phenomenon Yacht Rock. Josh was generous to a fault. He was charitable with his time and engaged in pro bono work providing IT services to friends, families, acquaintances, and other members of the Atlanta community. Josh had an uncanny ability to quote any line from any movie he ever watched, even if he slept through half of it. Most people would describe Josh as the most brilliant person they know. Josh is survived by his wife Jenna and his daughter Reilly Laine; his parents Elaine and Jay Buehler; his sister Leah and his niece Harmony and nephew Abraham and Amos; and too many close friends to list. A memorial celebration will be held at Venkman's on Thursday, beginning at 3 PM with story sharing until 5 PM, a moment of remembrance around 5:30 PM, dinner thereafter with an acoustic Beatles show that starts at 7 PM. Please make reservations for Venkman's.
