Glenn Deshaun Rule, affectionately known as Man Man and Bweed, was born February 24, 1984 in Sacramento, CA. He was the youngest of 5 and only son to Glenn and Bernice Rule. He entered into rest peacefully on October 17, 2018.
Man graduated from John F. Kennedy High School in 2003. He worked with his father Glenn who owns Rule’s Landscaping. He was an avid reader and a terrific writer. He was a very thoughtful and spiritual man, always musing over the teachings of the Bible, and how to apply these teachings to his own life. He was baptized in 2011 at Bayside of South Sacramento (BOSS) by Bishop Sherwood Carthen.
When he was a young boy, Man was the sole chosen student at Freeport Elementary School to speak with President Clinton via the internet for the President’s NetDay ‘96 launch. He was fortunate to meet Cabinet member Ron Brown who attended the school to facilitate the event. Man was dubbed “The Ambassador of Freeport” by an East Coast professor who visited the school after the launch because of all the attention garnered from the event.
Those of us who knew Man knew how much he loved his family! He would do ANYTHING for his parents and those he loved. If you needed anything from him, you need only ask. He may reply with a “HELL NAW” or an “AWW SHIT,” but he would make sure you were taken care of! During the last year of his life, Man was living his best life by traveling to Cancun, Las Vegas, the Bay area to see his Raiders play for the first time- he was a diehard Raiders fan, shopping, and hanging out with his best friend/dad at Thunder Valley Casino. He also enjoyed going to Winco to order pizza and chicken wings. He loved chicken so much, he was given the nickname “Uncle Chicken” by his nephew Elijahwan. He developed a confidence that shined through everything. It was a blessing to witness his growth and humbleness. He was such a unique and pleasant individual.
Man left behind a collection of writings that showcased his true spiritual journey, his quest to be greater, and his desire to truly be a child of God. His writings are his own personal legacy, and they allowed him to tap into the inner depths of his soul and express how he truly was a child of God, overcoming personal trials and tribulations and tapping into the spirit that He knew was greater in him than that which was in this world.
He was proceeded in death by his grandparents Gerald and Noelita Buford. He is survived by his parents Glenn and Bernice Rule, his Grandmother Helen Rule, his sisters Larita Abdul-Rahman, Ayanna Rule (Chris Davis), Marquelle Rule-Dawson (Adero Dawson) and Jamala Rule (Anthony Brown), his nephews Isaiah (wife Maria), Elijahwan, Ahmyr, Ahmari, Jayson, Joseph, his niece Angelica, grandnephew Ivan and a host of aunts, uncles and cousins.
