He is also survived by his first daughter, Terri Bruffy, his second daughter, Rachel Crockett and her husband and devoted son-in-law Chris Julian, his grandson, Christopher Bruffy and his wife Anna Bruffy, his granddaughter Natalie Bruffy VanVranken and her husband Brian VanVranken, and one great-grandchild, Kasey VanVranken.

  • So sorry for your loss. He will always be part of the CNKS family.

  • My condolences to the family of Mr Crockett, I worked with him for 15 years at Avec Electronics before the company closed

  • Clarence, being 15 years older, was somewhat of hero of mine in my very young years. I asked my parents if I could change my name to Clarence. The picture used here has been the visual memory of Uncle Clarence all these years. I am so glad I got to see him just a few years ago. My prayers for peace and hope go out to Jill and Rachel and the family. May God give comfort and strength at this time. —Ed Felter, nephew

  • To ALL of the family, I want to express my deepest condolences for your loss. The loss of a parent, grandfather, or spouse is just something that is hard to understand. Know that he will be watching over all of you. Again, I am truly sorry for your lost. Respectfully,. Pamula Bruffy

  • We love you, Daddy.

  • Thank you so much for the job, guidance and encouragement you gave me when I was right out of high school. I have never forgotten your kindness and generosity. You are a wonderful man! Chrissie Chandler
