It is with great sadness that the Rule family mourns the death of Joseph "Sam" Rule. He was born July 24, 1934 in Seattle, one of seven boys, son of Wilbur and Lucille Rule. He died April 19, 2013 surround by his family.

He was a boarding student at Kings Garden HS and graduated early to join the Air Force in 1952. Sam then graduated from Edison Tech and became an accountant.

Sam is survived by Lois, his loving wife of 46 years, his daughter Tina (Alan) Kinnard, daughter Samantha (Mike) Corbin and in Sam's words "Five of the smartest most beautiful Grandchildren", Amanda, Nick, Becca, Matthew and Zachary. He has three surviving brothers, Bill, Robert and Jack.

Sam was a loving, generous father and grandfather. Also a good friend and pretty good golfer. He worked over 20 years for Universal Services, living in Alaska for ten years, and then started his own company Golden Rule, which he ran successfully for 20 years. He was an officer for Friends of the Lynnwood Library and played bridge in many groups. Sam had a love of golf and travel, ready to go anytime anywhere. Everyone who knew him was witness to his warmth, intelligence and generosity. His family and friends meant everything to him.

"Lois, Samantha, and Tina, Our deepest condolences to you and your families. Our hearts go out to you as you mourn the loss of such a wonderful husband,..." Mustach Family (Edmonds, WA)
