Bill Corbin, 71, formerly of Bel Air, MD, passed away on Saturday, May 12, 2018 at his home in Charlotte after a brief battle with kidney disease. He was loving husband to Dorcas Sutherland Corbin, with whom he would have celebrated 50 years of marriage next week.

Born August 1, 1946 in Fallston, MD, he was son of the late Elmer Corbin and Eleanor Burton Corbin. Bill's greatest joy in life was his family, leaving his beloved hometown and moving to Charlotte in 2005 to be closer to his only daughter, Stacey Corbin Ellis, and her family. Bill was known by all for his generous spirit, big heart, and even bigger sense of humor.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 50 years, Dorcas; loving daughter, Stacey Corbin Ellis; wonderful son-in-law Brian Ellis; and beloved grandchildren, Kaitlyn Corbin Ellis and Brandon Michael Ellis, all of Charlotte. He was preceded in death by his sister Edith Fanning. He is survived by his sister Delores Doss of Bel Air.

In lieu of a memorial service, a private celebration of Bill's life will be held in July; details will be provided to friends and family.
