Cecil Charles Pluff

February 27, 1934 — April 14, 2024


Our Dad, Cecil Charles Pluff, passed away April 14, 2024.  He was 90 years old.  He leaves behind three proud sons, Brad (Jami), Charlie (Stacy), and Tom (Denise).   

Writing an obituary for your father is hard.   Maybe one of the hardest things I have ever done.  It would be easy to just list his life accomplishments, and there are many.  I could go on about how everybody liked him and how great of a person he was, and it would all be true. I could list all the things he enjoyed doing throughout his life and how much he loved his late wife, Nancy.  All true and would make writing this easier.  But that doesn’t capture the message I want to send.  Something my brother wrote does it better than anything a typical obituary could do.

He wrote: “A big part of me, I’m ashamed to admit, felt relief from the pain of watching him suffer day after day.   Watching my once mighty, proud superhero being reduced to needing help to do literally everything was taking its toll on me.  He passed away peacefully, and he would never want me to be weak.  I’ll remember him for his inner fortitude and honesty.  How simply he lived.  How dedicated and disciplined he was in his work.  How strong he could speak when he stood up for something. But also, though he rarely showed it, his tender heart.  Dad was “old school” just like Gramps was.   This is his legacy, and I am proud.”

Per Dad’s request, there will be no services.
