Cree-L Kofford (born July 11, 1933) has been a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 1991.

Kofford was born to Cree Clarence Kofford and his wife, Melba Nelson, in Santaquin, Utah. He grew up in many locations in Utah, Nevada and California due to his father being employed in the construction industry. From age nine to fifteen Kofford lived in Fairfield, Utah, and at age fifteen he moved to Orem, Utah. It was in Orem that he met Ila MacDonald, his future wife.

Kofford received a bachelor's degree from the University of Utah. He then was a high school teacher for several years. He earned a law degree through the University of Southern California's night school. Kofford also taught early-morning seminary for the LDS Church.

Kofford eventually established his own law practice. He lived for about 30 years in Monrovia and Arcadia, California. In the LDS Church, Kofford served as a bishop, stake president, and regional representative. At the time of his call as a general authority he was serving as president of the church's New York New York Mission, which at that time included all of New York City, Long Island, about four counties going north from New York City and a small part of Connecticut.

Kofford served as a member of the church's Second Quorum of the Seventy from 1991 to 1994 and then in the First Quorum of the Seventy until he was designated an emeritus general authority in 2003. He later served as president of the Family and Church History Mission in Salt Lake City.
