Pelzie fought a good fight and he won. His battle began September of 2020 when he was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. On Monday, July 12, 2021, at 1:22 a.m. at his home in Brentwood California with his wife and daughter by his side Pelzie went home to be with the Lord.
Pelzie was a God-fearing family man. He was his happiest just being with family, friends and loving the Lord. He loved to travel, enjoying the beautiful and magnificence of the California coast and majestic mountains with one of his favorite places Newport Coastal Villas. He was an avid reader, always learning new things and doing research to find the answers and truth. He was a Bible School teacher, historian, politician, and a sports commentator all wrapped up in one. He was a servant in many ways and to many.
Pelzie leaves to cherish his memories: his wife, Donna Smith; his beloved daughter, Crystal LaDonna Smith; his brothers, James Alfred Smith (Flora), Robert Allen Smith and sister Kathy Helene Smith, sister-in-law Harry Randolph (Helen) Wilson, brother-in-law Isaac (Kimberly) Williams all of Bolton, NC.
