Being the oldest, Allen Rashawn Brown was born on August 3rd, 1974 to Ramona (Mona) Brown and Allen (Abbie) Manning. He later changed his name from Brown to Manning. His proud parents went on and created loving extended families. To see the love, happiness and strength of all Allen's siblings towards each other is so magical and unimaginably just wonderful.

Allen was known to many friends and family by either Pump-Pump, Al-Buff, Buff, Shawn, or Bundy. He had a joy and passion for bowling which was also instilled in Mona's four other children by their grandmother, Ms. Gerri. His love for cooking and grilling earned him the title "chef" amongst his friends during their cookout gatherings.
Allen was educated in the New York City Public School System. He worked various jobs, most recently in construction. His father and brothers are part of the same company.
He kept a low profile and had a heart of gold. This same heart shattered while holding his brother Kenny (KB) that early morning of July 8th, 2020.
Heartbroken, Allen departed this life on Tuesday, August 11th, 2020 at 7:25 P.M. in the Mount Sinai Hospital ICU Room.
He was preceded in death by both grandmothers, Gerri Brown and Naomi Manning; and uncles, Kevin Brown and Wayman Manning.
He leaves to cherish fond memories: his mother, Ramona (Mona) Brown; father, Allen (Abbie) Manning; two daughters, Alana Manning and Daeisha Luciano; stepmothers, Denise (DeeDee) Manning and Judith (Judy) Manning; sisters, Shandreka, Shana, Lemorkisha, Tyresha, Tanya, and Angela; brothers, Peter, Devon, Christopher, Adam, and Garrett; aunts, Crystal Brown and Josephine Manning; uncles, Oliver and Kenneth Manning; his partner, Jasmin Griffin and her daughter Jabrea; twenty-one nieces and nephews; and a host of relatives, cousins, and friends from Wagner and beyond.
