Pellington lived in Ramsey, New Jersey. He died in 1994 as a result of complications from Alzheimer's disease. His wife Milica "Micki" often accompanied him to games, while helping to raise their family in Timonium, Maryland. His youngest son is film and music video director Mark Pellington. His older son, William "Bato" Pellington, is an industrial real-estate broker in Baltimore, at CB Richard Ellis. Pellington also owned the Iron Horse restaurant in Timonium. Opened in 1963, it was famous for its large sizes portions of almost everything on the menu since it served many of the Colts players.
