Kenneth Joseph Erb Jr. (age 63) passed away suddenly December 12, 2023, in Cleveland, Ohio.
Kenny was born on November 30, 1960, in Cleveland, Ohio and raised by his mother, Josephine (Morana) Kenaga. He is a self-taught guitarist and lived his life through his love of music that began when the family moved to Fremont, Ohio, during his teenage years. After moving to Cleveland in 1982, he formed the band Shok Paris, one of the pioneers of the Cleveland Heavy Metal scene. The band had much success throughout the 1980’s and through all the ups and downs, Kenny never gave up on his dream and continued making music until the very end.
Kenny is preceded in death by his beloved and cherished mother Josephine (Morana) Kenaga and the love of his life, Diane “Dodi” Braun. He is survived by his siblings, Donovan (Beth) and Kristen Kenaga and his loyal and ever-faithful cat, Nicky. Beloved uncle to Jessica (Jon) Barnes, Tyler, Josie and Elliott Kenaga. Cherished and loving caretaker to Jeannie and beloved nephew, cousin and friend to many.

We (Donovan & Kristen) would like to thank everyone who have reached out during this difficult time and will forever cherish all the wonderful memories, photos and tributes for our brother.
Keep on Screamin’…
