Bill worked 33 years with General Electric, a career that took him, Beth, and their family from New York to Ohio to California and finally to Lynchburg. Along the way, Bill's wit, warmth, and compassion won him many friends.

He is survived by his five children, Susan Elizabeth Chambers (Gene Cripe), of Turlock, CA; William D. "Bill" Torbick (Anyi) of Forest; Marita Jane Torbick of New Bedford, MA; Nicholas J. "Nick" Torbick of Lynchburg; and Ellen Torbick Stephens (Gerald) of Birmingham, AL, and by eleven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
