We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose- Romans 8:28

Clarence Kenneth VanBrakle Jr. was born September 17,1954 in Austin Texas to Elizabeth and Clarence K. VanBrakle Sr. Clarence professed a love for Christ and was baptized at an early age by Rev. Alfred Johnson at Zion Hill Baptist Church. Clarence attended Austin Independent School District where he enjoyed playing sports such as basketball and football. In Kenny’s spare time you would often find him playing his saxophone as the lead saxophonist of his band. His smile was contagious as he greeted everyone he encountered, but don’t let those big beautiful brown eyes and that smile fool you Kenny didn’t mind whooping anyone in a game of Dominos but if you happened to win it was because you cheated. Kenny enjoyed his time watching his favorite team The Dallas Cowboys, and when his Cowboys lost he would say the “Cowboys are SORRY”. Kenny became VIP at whichever Nursing home he was at because anywhere he went you knew you were being entertained by one of Gods angels. Kenny was also known for spreading the Gospel to others by singing his favorite song “Jesus is on the main line”.
