Chucky later met and married Floretta Herrin and from that union their son Larry Pelzer Jr. was born. Loving and kind with always a joke to share, chucky was well known and well-liked by all. He especially enjoyed spending time with the children. Whether it be those in his family in his neighborhood, or at church, he delighted in making making them smile by handing out candy and money whenever he was around.
